Leanne M Christie

The distinctive oil painter, Leanne M Christie, moved to the Canadian West Coast at the end of 2008 after over a decade in Europe and a childhood in South Africa.

Educated at the influential Rhodes University art school in South Africa, Christie was instilled with the love of the painting process itself. Christie’s work penetrates deeper that the painting’s subject and reveals a skilled and intuitive understanding of the painting language itself. 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 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. Christie’s daily 24km bicycle commute from her home in Coquitlam to her Downtown Eastside studio gives her an intimate kinship with the flow of the urban street.
