Christine White

christine-whiteChristine White is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Lukwungen Territory. She is particularly inspired with using found objects, space, the body and includes interactive components to engage viewers. Bikes keep appearing in her art practice, and are a huge part of her lifestyle.  She likes to go on introspective expeditions and extrospective inquisition, accompanied by a cup of tea. Collaborating with people is also a huge part of her work, without them it would all be meaningless. Her mission is to connect people through art.
