Christine Johnson is an esteemed Australian painter and printmaker. With a career spanning nearly three decades, Johnson has curated and created, demonstrating a genuine adoration for art. In 2012, she was awarded a Creative Fellowship Grant by the State Library of Victoria and in 2013, was an Artist in Residence at the Baldessin Press, St. Andrews.
Johnson’s oeuvre often features flowers. Depicted in full bloom, these flowers represent an avenue into ideas around classification. Johnson softly asks, how does the taxonomy of nature alter our perception of it?
Johnson is represented in the collections of the Australian Embassy, Paris, Monash University, Queensland University, BHP, Artbank, several regional galleries including Benalla and Hamilton Art Galleries and in many private collections.
