Course Leader Further Education, UCA Rochester

Academic, School of Further Education

Chris Wraith leads the pre-degree courses at UCA Rochester and has worked in further education at UCA for over 15 years.

Chris graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Loughborough University in 2001, and went on to study a MA in Printmaking at the Royal College of Art.

His own work is influenced by sci-fi illustration and noir rock album art (specifically duo-chromatic images that try to hide or inform perspective through colour), his abstract collages made from ‘dumb’ materials play with notions of digital perspective and virtual senses of reality.

Exploring the restrictive qualities of screen-based images, working with the quantity of virtual space that exists within a screen, he is interested in the way intangible 3D objects can be translated into a physical plane.
