Bio

Christian Flynn was born in Innisfail, Queensland, in 1978 and moved to Brisbane in 1988.

Both his undergraduate and post-graduate fine art degrees were completed at the Queensland College of Art; with Flynn achieving Course Work Masters with first class Honours in 2007.

With my paintings I attempt to track and capture a strain of modernism that has a history and contemporary expression in design, video games and science fiction. I do this to counter the notion that modernism, particularly painting, is a solely progressive, authoritarian and puritanical phenomenon. Recently I have introduced simple organic forms into my visual vocabulary to counter the severe tone of the hard edge elements that often dominate my work. I have also begun to re-explore the sculptural modes of my earlier work that continue to inform my current production. The synthesis of these various visual languages is my goal.
