Portrait of the Artist

Chris Deverill is a sculptor who is establishing himself in the West with extraordinary work. We had photographed some of his pieces several weeks ago. Chris contacted me about making a portrait for American Artist Magazine and for some of his upcoming shows.

The Challenge: Create an environment that felt like a workplace and gallery and that would convey Chris as a personable artist.

The Solution: I built a set in the corner of the studio using a window to give the feel of natural light. I placed his sculptures in the near, medium range and background for a sense of depth. I added lighting with an irregular pattern on the back wall.

The Result: A portrait of the artist that is engaging and will be published in magazines and press releases. The image will also be printed for gallery displays and literature.
