Artist Statement

Feeling the privilege of art-making is what drives the playful, often soulful paintings of Christina Lovisa. Drinking in the fuel of exploration, she produces large bodies of mixed media and encaustic work which emerge from “waves of inspiration”. Found-objects, i-phone photography and fragments of text are likely to influence a new series of work as she attempts to decode the mystery from their unrecorded history, leaving the viewer to formulate the story for themselves.
