Christopher Albert’s work contains multiple layers of meaning, often referring to cryptic personal details, art history, his own previous work, and consumer culture. In addition to painting and drawing, his work is composed of unusual materials, from used paint rollers to granola boxes and hamburger wrappers. Albert’s art is often conceived as a series, sometimes lasting several years in the making, in which he explores a theme or process. In 2014 his work was the subject of a solo show at Matteawan Gallery and was included in the group exhibition Salon des Refuse at the Garrison Art Center in Garrison, NY. Albert has also had solo exhibitions at Daniel Aubry Gallery and Go North Gallery, both in Beacon, NY. He has participated in group exhibitions at Matteawan Gallery (The UV Portfolio and Drive-Thru); Edge Gallery, Denver, CO; Imogen Holloway Gallery, Saugerties, NY; and bau, Beacon, NY. Albert has been involved in several collaborative projects, including kork, an exhibition space in an accounting firm, and the Dead Hare Radio Hour, an art-related podcast. He grew up in Colorado and lives in Beacon, NY.
