San Francisco based sculptor Chris Romer trained in Chicago, New York and England, where he grew up. He works in wood, creating large and small abstract pieces that remind you of the animals, birds, insects and fish he is so found of. He develops what he calls eco-systems for the viewers to become part of as they walk in and among his works. The gorgeous colors and shapes make you want to reach and touch them.
