New Zealand artist and designer Susan Christie is known for her bold and vibrant use of colour. Susan’s artwork is concerned with the emotional connection we all have to colour. Her paintings carry art historical references to the Memphis and Bauhaus groups, yet emerge as distinctly unique and contemporary. Rather than beginning with a fixed idea, she’ll pick a shape and a colour, make the first mark and then build the image intuitively. Each painting results from a balance between improvisation, chance and order.
