Christine Vella

Death on the Landscape Oil on Canvas 47.5” x 60”

Australian painter, Christine Vella is a master at studying the landscapes that surround her and translating them into intricate compositions that reflect the diversity of her homeland and the richness of its cultural legacy. Alternating between abstract landscapes and what she calls hard edge abstraction, Vella skillfully blends color, line, and form in unique ways, where all the artistic elements converge to create new perspectives of landscape and the myriad of details hidden within recognizable forms.

Through Vella’s art, the viewer is invited to achieve a new understanding of landscape and how it can be experienced visually across space and time. This is a source of pride for the artist, who explains, “Our country is very diverse and a constant source of inspiration.”
