Christian Halford is a contemporary artist living and working in Queensland, Australia.

'Painting is a language of life and a reaction to experience. It allows me to take risks, trust intuition and feel excitement. I paint in an expressive way that captures the feeling of my subject.  The tactile nature of paint is also an important part of my work.  Its process wrestles the analogy between reality and abstraction to find vitality. Between the dialog of under painting and over painting I am interested in creating works that ignite deeper complexities.'
