Christopher Colville (1974- ) After receiving his BFA in Anthropology and Photography from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and MFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico, he returned home to the Sonoran Desert and is currently living in Phoenix.
Colville’s works are one-of-a-kind camera-less photopaper-based art. The artist places found and other objects on silver gelatin photo paper, and uses the light and heat from a controlled gunpowder blast to create unique images.
Colville works with multiple art organizations and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Arizona State University. Recent awards include the Humble Arts Foundation New Photography Grant, Artist Project Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, a Public Art Commission from the Phoenix Commission on the Arts as well as an artist fellowship through the American Scandinavian Foundation.
