Cristie’s work consists in painting on cotton canvas that she personally prepares using a particular technique and above all an unusual material that’s rabbit glue. When a painting is treated like this, small imperfections will appear at the time of painting, which will represent the signs that time leaves along the flow of the life of each of us.
Color, timeline and signs left by time: these are the fundamental characteristics present in every abstract landscape that Cristie paints. The concept of time that the artist offers us through her paintings is always a different flow but at the same time we perceive a continuity represented by the timeline, where the various transformations of life take place. Everything changes along the timeline: it changes our body, the people around us change, the colors change our lives.
