In his newest series and first showing with UTA Artist Space, J. Christopher seeks to redefine an understanding of majesty and beauty by portraying youth in a regality that transcends physical limitations. Through these powerful portrayals he encourages viewers to bear witness to the profound strength and grace that emanate from those who face challenges such as albinism, vitiligo, monocular vision, and more. Central to Christopher’s artistic vision is the belief in ‘beauty amongst the thorns.’ This collection stands as a testament to this philosophy, serving as a platform to share the stories of individuals navigating life with unique challenges. By weaving this phrase into the fabric of his work, J. Christopher aspires to not only inspire, but to foster understanding and empathy in those who encounter these pieces. Through these evocative works, viewers embark on a journey to unearth the regality that dwells within us all, serving as a reminder that true beauty is found in the strength to endure and the grace to thrive in the face of adversity.
