Atmospheric Intent

Much of Christopher Soukup’s work is centred around creating a specific mood – one which depicts a scene somewhere between calm and ominous tension, transporting the viewer from the comfort of their own perspective.

Having grown up in Western Pennsylvania and other cities on the east coast, Soukup’s youth was spent near rust belt cities associated with decline, and as such, translates this idea of disconnect into the dark and cinematic works.
Having lived in California for over 10 years, Soukup now draws upon the experiences from these earlier years, creating a reconciliation with the past and a thoughtful consideration of reflection in the days, months and decades that follow childhood.
