Courtenay is a visual artist based on the Gold Coast. Drawing inspiration from the graffiti of Melbourne lanes, the iconography of medieval religious art, the urban beach culture of the Gold Coast and the energy of her birth place Sydney, Courtenay pushes boundaries and breaks the rules. Her trademark ‘CRT’ is derived from her nickname Court, and has become not simply her artist signature but a ever present symbol within the visual language of her work. Courtenay’s painting practice is heavily influenced by popular music, street culture, urban aesthetics, underground zines, pin-up girls, pop and graffiti art. Connecting the contemporary world with bygone eras, with heavy references to the 70s and 80s CRT weaves song lyrics, advertisements, motifs and icons onto multi-layered and coloured surfaces.
