In “Constructing Colour,” Robert Christie presents his latest abstract paintings with an engaging and unexpected balance of nuanced colour, surface, and form. Christie creates striking assemblages by stacking, layering, arranging, and re-arranging painted canvas and plywood. Drawing on the history and traditions of abstraction, his works are simultaneously playful and sophisticated explorations of colour, illusionistic depth, and bas-relief.
