Statement

Christina Massey was born and raised in Northern California where she studied painting, printmaking and theater set design. Through various series of paintings and painting based installations she uses word play and theatrics to communicate opinions about general political topics that ultimately define observations about the Art world itself.

Massey’s work blurs boundaries between painting and sculpture, fiber and tactile arts.  Using techniques such as weaving and hand stitching, and incorporating fibers such as collared shirts, khaki and denim pants, she then paints in layers of acrylic and oil paints.   The works sometimes remains on traditional frames as wall hung work, and at others becomes whole installations created from multiple sculptural forms created from the painted canvases.

Her work has shown in multiple venues such as Dacia Gallery, Rush Arts Corridor Gallery, The Ormond Memorial Art Museum, Like the Spice Gallery, The Taller Boricua Galleries, Nurture Art, The MoCADA and The Contemporary Art Center in NJ.

Her work has been featured in multiple publications, including an interview on Brooklyn Independent Television, and in print in the New Art Review, ARTiculate Magazine 2014, Abstractions 2010, Skewed Online Magazine and Bestiary Magazine.  Massey’s work can be found in multiple private collections, and publicly at the Janet Turner Museum of Art in California.  She now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
