Chris Salmon

Chris Salmon is a ceramicist and painter who grew up on a midlands sheep farm but now lives and works on Tasmania’s pristine southeast coast. Chris's observations of the colours and textures of the landscapes and seascapes close to her inform her varied practices.

Known for her rich green and turquoise vessels embossed with twirly ferns and leaves, Chris also creates delicate organic cups and saucers, perfect for a special brew. With a palette ranging from pale and serene to deep and soulful, Chris's vessels replicate the rich variety of Tasmanian vistas.

In her painting practice, works verging on abstraction remain anchored with short-hand gestures to horizon lines and structure, both natural and made. Utilising swathes of negative space and broad sweeps of palette knife and medium, Chris's works are often minimalist renderings of the ways she interprets the landscape.

Chris has a Diploma in Art Craft and Design in Print Making and a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Painting.  She has work in collections in Australia, America, Europe and Canada.
