Ava P Christl

I have worked with ideas and issues relating to land and water for over 30 years. I make paintings that address nature and place; wilderness; nature as healer; land use; and our human relationship to the living land. I use colour and form to evoke a sense of place.

I am currently working on a series of paintings that express ideas about rivers. River Songs involves explorations of some of the great river systems of British Columbia with the intention to show the wonder and beauty of each river system and to evoke a sense of place that is inspiring, provocative, compelling and spiritual.

I hold a BFA from NSCAD University in Halifax. My paintings have been exhibited in public galleries across Canada and are held in private and public collections including the Yukon Government’s Permanent Collection, and Yukon Hospital Corporation and the Art Bank of Canada.
