Tim Christie is a Wellington-based internationally represented artist. His art practice emerged from a series of explorations where he examined the intersection between geometric design and anatomical forms.
For close to 20 years Tim has been working as a creative professional. He spent the first part of his career immersed in the advertising industry working as a design specialist for a number of local agencies.
“I enjoy protracting the transitional experience between these two dimensions. With my large painted pieces I exploit the 2D surface qualities to draw attention to the graphic nature of the art and to further 'camouflage' the underlying 3D compositions. It allows me to present seemingly abstract pieces of geometric art that can concurrently tell stories and explore themes with representational subject matter. Though some explore deeper themes or cultural concepts, many are whimsical and have a quirky idea or story to tell."
