‘If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is: Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.’ ~ William Blake
The dub spectrum website showcases the work of indie writer, poet and artist Christopher Sharp. His work spans a personal and creative journey working with sound, performance, text, video, installation, site specific, photography, drawing and painting. Christopher has a particular interest in the parallels between Eastern philosophy and existentialism forming a context for landscape painting as a symbol predating modernity, as a means not only to express something beautiful, but also affording a space in a world dominated by increasingly intrusive and divisive technologies. Much of his work draws from the coast and countryside of his native Devon with an increasing interest in the region’s myths and folklore.
A reading from his debut novel can be found below and Chapter One: Aurea Spiralis is available to read for free. Adrift in Amnesia is available in Kindle and paperback editions here. He recently finished his second book, a series of poems inspired by cycle rides taken on Dartmoor. Christopher is currently working on his third book.
