Christopher Quinones

Christopher Quinones

Christopher Quinones grew up in Los Sures, Brooklyn. His undisciplined approach changes from ceramics, painting, printmaking, crochet and drawing to provide inelegant glimpses into a struggle with identity, race and place. Often using imagery drawn, photographed or interneted of Puerto Rico or Brooklyn, or taken from Taino, West African, and Western European ancient cultures, he relates them to himself as family, ancestors never known, places in times he can never be.
