Criss Canning, born in Melbourne, is one of Australia’s leading still-life artists, who composes distinctive artworks featuring flora and unique objects, arranged to effortlessly create seductive textures and balanced still-life compositions. Incredibly accomplished, Criss has devoted the past 50 years to painting. Working with oils, each brushstroke is thoughtfully applied with colour-laden gestures to create two and three dimensional forms.
Criss Canning is represented at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Australia, the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, and the Castlemaine Art Gallery. Canning’s work can be found in collections in London, Paris, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada, USA, Indonesia, Singapore and New Zealand.
