About Christine Flynn

Christine Flynn is a Toronto-based artist whose work is influenced by both scenic rural imagery and everyday urban landscape. Her large-scale photography is infused with graphic elements, enhanced with added textures, and finished in high-gloss resin.
The result is unique mixed media artwork - a culmination of Christine's keen eye, extensive global experiences, and innate love of nature and travel. In her most recent collections - North American Bison, Coast to Coast, and Urban Journey - Christine explores separate subject matter themes in each series while ultimately nurturing a sense of "seeing beauty in the ordinary" that represents the pervasive mood across all of her work. Her ability to skillfully capture experiences in her images rather than scenes, and to embrace the appeal in a seemingly random bold graphic, number, or colour, results in pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia and wanderlust.

Since her first solo show as an emerging artist at Pulse Contemporary Art Fair in New York, Christine's work has been widely exhibited in North America at art fairs such as Context Art Miami, and Scope, New York, as well as solo shows in Boston and Toronto galleries. Internationally, her work has been shown at major art fairs in London, Hamburg, and Paris. Christine has been commissioned by private collectors, restauranteurs, and boutique hoteliers. She has also been featured in numerous design publications and blogs, as well as a large multi-media project for HBC's The Room as a one of Canada's most prominent artists in the "24 designers, 48 eyes" campaign.
