The complexity in the paintings is intentional.

It’s the language that the painting uses to develop the relationship with you.

Just the right level of abstraction, built upon the history of the conversation between Christie and the medium.

What is left unsaid in the artwork is your invitation to engage with the city, the medium, and the artist.

Recollections of visited spaces are rich with

texture, sounds, smells, the atmosphere moving on your skin …


Space seeds memories.

Encounters with these anchors, nestled in the space that seeded them, evoke your faded recollections.

If real, and if the anchors no longer exist, how long can you remember?

When will you forget to remember?
