Australian painter Nadine Christensen takes ordinary subjects from the realms of suburbia or nature, but presents them as though imbued with electric light instead if bathing them in the softer glow of natural light. Christensen chooses to strip her works of depth, leaving the eye to settle on a flat surface, the result of treating both background and foreground the same way. The weightlessness that then settles is reflective of the electric glare of our age that unwittingly robs substance from its forms and spaces.
