About Leanne M Christie
Leanne M Christie is best known for her careful placement of brush strokes which seductively lead the viewer at a pace determined by the artist and the removal of colour as a fundamental element. Christie experiments with a hierarchy which places supremacy on brushstroke, then colour and finally composition without retreating fully into abstraction.
Christie’s paintings have become easily identifiable by their powerful use of white, the myriad of greys, the vigorous brushwork which dances on the edge of abstraction and their exploration of the urban streetscape as the catalyst of culture.
This collection of new works showcases the coming alive of urban landscapes with the bloom and blossom of Spring and new life. The artist has recorded an exclusive video artist talk to introduce the collection.
