Christopher Langton

Christopher Langton is a pop sculptor and installation artist who creates gigantic plastic blow-up ‘toys’ of frightening proportions.

Curator Mark Feary comments: Langton’s work makes you feel good, but only sort of. Indeed there is something ominous about these sculptures despite their bright colours, smiling faces and fun media.  They blend the playful naivety of Betty Boop and Astro Boy with the more knowing aesthetic palette of Roy Lichtenstein.  Langton breathes plastic life into bobbing and bopping figures like a Geppeto gone mad.  Dazzling wall works (popoptic bubbles) are swoon material – Highly toxic in nature and highly toxic in effect.

Acclaimed for his large scale installations, Christopher Langton has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas. Click to download the exhibition essay by Sophie Knezic from Langton’s 2019 exhibition, Colony or the media release.
