Past Artist In Residence
Melbourne based artist Nadine Christensen works primarily in painting. With a sustained interest in geographic and atmospheric phenomena, her practice seeks to examine the changing possibilities and conditions of perception and light, tracing the illusory spaces that can both imitate and invert the natural world. Christensen has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney and Glasgow. She holds an Advanced Diploma of Electronic Design and Interactive Media from Victoria University, a Post Graduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in Painting from Monash University, Gippsland. In 2002, she received the development grant from the Australia Council for the Arts for a studio residency at 18th Street. While here she continued to work on her series “Directional Drawings.” She also compiled a large archive of photographs, notes and collected fliers, papers, catalogues to use in future works.
