“Christie experiments with a hierarchy that places supremacy on brushstroke, then colour and finally composition without retreating into abstraction,” says a write-up from the gallery. “Christie’s paintings have become easily identifiable by the powerful use of white, the myriad of greys, the vigorous brushwork that dances on the edge of abstraction, and the exploration of the urban streetscape as the catalyst of culture.”

Appointments to visit the gallery can be booked between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Up to four people are allowed in the gallery at a time, to conform with COVID-19 protocols.

Call 604-521-7887 or email to book your free visit. You can also reserve online through Eventbrite – find the link at

Van Dop Gallery is at 421 Richmond St. See for more information.
