Christine Breakell-Lee

Studio 212

Born in Ontario and raised in Vancouver, Christine Breakell-Lee is a Canadian abstract artist who explores her intuitive relationship with colour and space as a means of evidencing private emotions and memories. In the expressive manner of Lyrical Abstraction, Breakell-Lee creates works that serve as visual explorations of her moods and curiosities over the course of a single day as if a colourful diary of private dramas. Breakell-Lee mostly avoids using brushes preferring to apply her material with her hands and fingers creating a direct immediacy with each piece. Her approach is intuitive and unquestioning, allowing time for reflection but not doubt. Christine Breakell-Lee lives in Vancouver and maintains a full time studio practice in the historic 1000 Parker Building in the city’s east side arts district.
