CHRISTOPHER MALONE


       Ceramic Figures                         Soft Sculpture

Christopher Malone moved from Boston to Washington in 1992 to work at the National Zoo where he cared for the giant pandas Hsing-Hsing and Ling-Ling. Talent and a life-long fascination that started with doll-making soon led Malone into the art world, and since then he has focused on his soft-sculptured creatures, which are in private collections and have been featured in galleries in New York, New Orleans, Baltimore and in Washington DC. Malone debuted with Zenith Gallery in 2008 and continues to dazzle and delight us. A self-taught artist, Malone says of his work, I believe my creations come from my unknown African past. When my ancestors came to this country chained in the belly of ships as cargo, they were taken away from their language, families, way of life; and this included their Gods. When I am creating a doll, I'll have the exotic fabric, beads and feathers on a table in front of me, and I let the Universe (spirit) guide me in what to do with it. Maybe my guidance in creativity is coming from my unknown ancestors... perhaps telling me stories that I have never heard and showing mask and painted faces that I have never seen?
