This new work is representative of my path, which is inspired by adventure and independence, and my love of color and texture. For me travel is a major catalyst for my evolving themes and artistic practice. I am exploring spontaneous, gestural marks and subtle female forms through abstraction.

I attempt to show the steps of picture making. Layers are integral to my imagery and process; I employ underpainting, graphite lines, and subtractive techniques to infuse a work with multiple surfaces. Color and shape are both organic and intuitive and feminine, and inspired by the natural beauty of the Irish splendor.

My works have evolved from silence. One of the most important aspects of art making is the process itself, in cultivating stillness and reverence as I work. Mine is an intuitive practice, exploring the fruitful moments and the droughts of spiritual experience, and the natural cycles of creation, preservation and transformation.

The finished works are a relatively permanent record ofthose moments, as they capture something intangible and place it inside a physical object, navigating and defining an intermediate space between the outer and the inner, the seen and the unseen, ultimately becoming a vehicle for a moment of contemplation.

Introducing new artist Christiaan Pretorius whose work will be featured in "Landscape, Classical to Contemporary," opening on April 9th.

Christiaan Pretorius is an artist who works across boundaries: as a painter, muralist and theatre artist. His education in his native South Africa developed his keen draftsmanship and concise, graceful composition. 

Before emigrating to the US, he was one of South Africa’s most prominent theatre designers and directors: his lush, visually stunning productions were presented at the famous Market theater, South African State Theatre and various Opera and Ballet venues across the country.  At the same time he exhibited paintings and drawings in numerous successful gallery shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Upon arrival in Chicago, Christiaan translated his bold painterly style into murals for interior design. He quickly became one of the most respected and recognized mural artists in the area.  He continued to paint his personal work along with client commissions, keeping a fresh sensibility while working in a wide range of styles.

Christiaan’s work was shown at the South African National Gallery in 2010, and two short films he directed were screened at the Cannes Film Festival Fringe in 2012. Christiaan has always had a love for both classical and contemporary art, and sees no reason why the one should exclude the other.  

In 2014 he won an Acanthus award from the Institute for Classicism in Architecture and Art, for his grisaille landscape paintings in a residence at 1500 Lake Shore Drive. Those paintings gave rise to his current series of large scale landscape canvases.
