Christina Galbiati

I

nterconnecting craft and Pop Art with social political themes and conceptual imagery, Christina Galbiati’s practice has seen her crafting a unique hand-collaged aesthetic; symbolising the importance of tangible communication amidst this digital age.

Using paper and printed words as her main catalysts, the artist juxtaposes abstract patterns with reduced forms. Figures, landscapes, animals, graphic symbols and abstract compositions are recurring subjects, appearing cut, reformed and pasted upon her canvas. The xeorgaphy techniques she has developed are seen in her use of uneven tone, broken line and word patterns, combined with bold passages of

paint and torn paper. Her background in design has informed her fine art work, particularly in her use of graphic, illustrative motifs where the complicated details of her subjects are smoothed and refined, presented as minimal yet recognisable shapes and forms. Galbiati’s work has been exhibited nationally across the USA, most recently at Kent State University’s Small Works Juried Exhibition, the Webster Arts Open Theme Annual Juried Exhibition, and the 30th Annual Viridian Artist’s International Juried Competition. cgalbiati.com hello@cgalbiati.com
