Christopher Orchard

‘Christopher Orchard is an extraordinary talent in that he combines uncommon vision and skill to create art that captures the zeitgeist of our time while maintaining the highest formal qualities of painting and drawing.’ – Stephen Rosenberg, Stephen Rosenberg Fine Art, New York.

Christopher Orchard is one of the leading exponents of the drawn image in Australia and is well recognised by his peers in Australia, Europe and the United States. Much loved by the many students who have been privileged to have him as a teacher at Adelaide Central School of Art, Christopher was awarded an Arts SA Fellowship to assist him to prepare for an exhibition in New York in late 2011. Christopher regularly exhibits in Adelaide and has work held by the Art Gallery of South Australia, Artbank, Government House (SA), The British Petroleum Collection (London), Kedumba Drawing Collection (NSW), FH Fauldings and numerous private collections locally and internationally.
