Chris Hobel

Sunshine Coast, Qld


Sunrise Beach Queensland Australia
Contemporary Painter and Tutor in Acrylic, Oil, Mixed Media, Collage and Drawing

Both a figurative and abstract painter, Chrisís art is constantly evolving reflecting the beauty found in nature with emphasis on the process of striving to express its essence through colour and texture. From combing the beach to recycling household packaging, she collects items which may provide experimental mark making tools for playful exploration into the world of light, colour and design. Unexpected results may trigger the imagery that inspires and motivates her from the changing local environment and past memories of her travels.
Her current art practice focuses on exploring the application of highly textured oils, acrylics or mixed media with both conventional and found tools. They are complex works consisting of many paint layers creating a rich vibrant and colourful set of textures. The magic and joy for her is in their execution and the enjoyment they give to others
Chris enjoys learning and sharing her knowledge with her weekly tutored class
