Christopher Badger

In Christopher Badger's work, which spans several media, simple and familiar shapes, colors, and objects are central. In both two and three dimensions, Badger renders precise compositions whose simultaneous contextual references seem, at first, oxymoronic: his use of diagram-like abstractions are clean, mathematical, nearly synthetic, yet Badger is drawn to organic materials and concepts. Badger’s practice explores both hard, minimalist geometry and the natural world around us, referencing to the evolution of each throughout art history. Shadow Phase (2013) charts the phases of the moon in the artist’s typical, nearly monochrome palette, accompanied by a series of shiny sculptural cast aluminum moon crater panels, each named after the actual celestial geologic formation they replicate. In addition to works on paper, he has worked with sound and installation, sometimes combining the two. He has exhibited widely throughout San Francisco and Los Angeles, at institutions including the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts.
