‘We Are Very Amused’ is a community exhibition celebrating the life and art of Christine Alison Ewert. Featuring paintings and drawings from Christine’s long career, this exhibition highlights the artist’s distinctive style that was authentically her own.
Christine was a long-time resident of Boroondara, having resided in Hawthorn for over 30 years. Her artworks are vibrant, colourful, entertaining and humorous. Each painting bursts with numerous images and themes, revealing themselves the longer you view them. Her works are thought-provoking and amusing, jam-packed with a myriad of imagery ranging from Aussie Rules football, local Melbourne icons, Ned Kelly helmets, dentures and Father Christmas, scattered over the canvas and at every angle.
A kaleidoscope of colour, images, themes and ideas, Christine’s artwork trademarks her unique personality and legacy.
Many of the artworks in this exhibition are for sale. You can buy an artwork on the Boroondara Arts shop website.
