Even If I Wasn't Here

Leanne M. Christie

“Even if I wasn’t here, the clouds will still gather on the mountains. They are not mine.”

As an urban oil painter, Christie is fascinated by the idea that our memories are inextricably linked to the anchors in our environment and that as these anchors disappear through development, our memories fade with them and inevitably, we forget to remember. Her new body of work for “Even if I Wasn’t Here” weaves together the experience of the space of the gallery with the experience of the zones of the urban environment, using it to interpret the feelings of belonging, confusion, alienation, and possession that we feel as humans living in a part of the world that is undergoing dynamic change.
