> DESCRIPTION

In the paintings, appropriated architectural structures combine with memory and transform into fiction. The use of color aims to trigger an emotional read that connects to the viewer’s recollection of place contained within the layered linear constructions. The superstructures rely on the hierarchy of their interrelation underpinnings. Layers reference time and building up to the desired edifice while light compels the process of the painting practice. A strange humor exists in this imaginary world through the awkward forms and “off” color palette. This adds a reprieve from the serious nature of the subject matter.

 

Christina Shurts’ paintings have exhibited on the west coast and abroad. Highlight exhibitions held at the Torrance Art Museum, LA Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Art Park, LOFT gallery San Pedro CA and even the Saatchi Gallery London UK Showdown Exhibition. Upcoming exhibitions include Lawrence Asher Gallery LA (February 2010) and Rare Gallery NY (April 2010).  Selected by Rafaela Platow, Chief Curator Contemporary Arts Center Cincinnati, out of almost 1000 applicants her work is included in New American Painting No. 87 MFA annual. Shurts will graduate in Spring 2010 with a MFA from California State University Long Beach.
