Cristina Popovici

Collection: Handmade

Christina has classical training in Fine Arts and adopted the fundamental European aspects of classical arts into my practice of abstract expressionism. Not only has this allowed full self-expression, but through this, she has gained confidence in artistic decision making from her classical training, and freedom to explore through abstract expressionism.
Christina has produced a large body of artworks throughout her career, exploring different formats such as traditional canvas, Perspex, PVC, fibreglass, and metal stencils, and different paints ranging from industrial paint, glass paint, ink, plaster, acrylic, spray paints and oils. These materials are a tool to express her vocabulary of techniques that have accumulated over the years.

Christina does not sketch new works before making them, instead, there is a process of internalization where energy and emotion grows and builds until it bursts through her gestures and transposes on the canvas. She always says that there is no separation between body, mind and spirit, in the sense that the body is like a vessel for the energy to express itself. Therefore where she gets inspired from is not as relevant as how she processes it.
