About the Artist:
The imagery which spills forth from the mind of Jeff Christensen takes its cues from his discomfort within society, his distrust of people in power, and his unease with the dogma of organised religion and the pervasive credulity of superstition. The narratives and messages contained within Christensen’s skillfully crafted paintings are borne from a satirical wit and his impressive grasp of a rich and darkly mysterious tapestry of personal symbolism. Many of the protagonists Christensen depicts exist in an enigmatic alternative dimension and appear to be on unusual and enlightening journeys of self discovery. We are invited to join them, where we are encouraged to unburden ourselves from the shackles of the prescribed doctrine of contemporary society; granting us freedom from the daily manipulation of our hearts and minds.
Jeff Christensen was born is Seattle in 1976, and currently lives and works in Salt Lake City, Utah. Raised on a diet of Heavy Metal and the dark imagery which often accompanies the genre, Jeff’s early ventures into art making adopted Metal’s aesthetic and scepticism, which he would later develop into the captivating artistic prowess he now wields. Jeff has exhibited his artwork extensively, both in his home country and abroad, at galleries such as beinArt Gallery, Australia.
