CHRISTINA EBERHART PLENITUDES 9th – 16th July 2011
For Christina Eberhart, painting is a physical thinking process. At the core of her practice is a key interest in change. In particular, it is the transitional space between the anchor points of start and finish; departure and arrival that she finds most captivating.
The surface of her paintings are often devoid of recognizable subject matter, where she prefers to work in more abstract and organic forms and deep, luminous colour combinations. The materiality of paint and natural forms are her main inspiration. She chooses to work with acrylic paints for their ease of movement and manipulation. In fact, she claims she would prefer that the paint on her canvases would never dry at all.
When representational imagery does appear in Eberhart’s work, it often remains without references to a time or place. Her studies of anonymous motorways bring us back to a sense of transit by playing on the universal. The open stretches littered with cars could be from any time or place, without clues as to what destination they are heading to.
Christina Eberhart studied Fine Art at Central St. Martins and is based in London.
