Donovan Christie

As we now live in such a fast paced world, we often forget what we once had around us or even what we still do. My aim is to bring attention to the things that often take a backseat in our little city, encouraging the viewer to pause and look at the landscape a little different.

My other objective is to immortalise this period of time, documenting the scenes of Australia in this day and age as we are on the verge of a dying era. Each picture I paint has a connection to me, even if only subtle; I am placing a piece of me into each painting. If you follow this series and where I plan to take it, you will notice a subliminal autobiography throughout. Each painting has a personal story attached; I have been a part of the scene in which I am capturing. I choose to leave the paintings vacant of people and life, not only to give the air that something has or is about to go down, but to also allow the viewer to place themselves in the setting and recreate their own memory or narrative.
