COVID-19 DONATION PROJECT
Curina artists and the team have come together to support the community in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the shortage of masks for healthcare workers, we have decided to donate 100% of our sales share from artworks on paper to Masks for Docs.
Let's take action now to support our community.
Please note: Prices do not include framing. Frames are available as add-ons on each artwork page.

"My work can be described as figurative landscape, a metaphor to think about various forms of migration and the complexity of memory, representation of the(female) body, and a shifting sense of place."
"Mine is a process of sympathetic improvisations, of forms trying on figures and figures trying on features to see if/how they hold. Simply, I’ll make an abstract painting then repurpose the abstractions as figures. This reversal of logic produces melodic and dissonant passages, unstable forms frozen in the moment of their becoming or dissolving. When predetermining a painting seems too direct, too much like language, this process taps into irrational and referential registers to reveal mutable thresholds between forms sparring for clarity and figures longing to relate."
“Exploring the relationship between matter and physical action acts as a conduit for connecting me to the natural world.”
“In late December of 2001, in the boiler room of my mother’s basement, with no reference point, I felt compelled to paint. Having no formal art training, apart from elementary and secondary school classes, my first efforts, while described as crude by some, were the foundation that I have built my creative voice on. I’ve been able to express the joys and pitfalls, of my total life experience, through a language that’s universal.”
"My paintings implant ordinary objects with psychological meanings, implying a human presence through depictions of accumulated collections. These collections, ranging from books to junk drawers to piles of empty boxes, focus on the oscillation between private meaning and public presentation."
"With the use of paint, concrete and other building materials, she creates abstract, sculptural paintings that mimic these surfaces and call up nostalgia, ephemera, and the dichotomy between beauty and imperfection."
"Each curve is hand molded, becoming an extension of her movement. The result is a reflection of her own internal image captured in physical form. Her art is dynamic in its creation – an open, experimental, unpredictable method, balancing the intentional and unintentional."
"All of my works are about light, in all its valences: as the specific light which is color; as the most humanly perceivable form of pure energy which allows us sight; and as the great spiritual metaphor. My formalistic concerns are mark and color over a strong albeit sometimes elusive substructure. I paint on transparent Acrylite® layers to mimic the way adults see and to call their attention to that seeing which is through their cultural programming and life experiences. The works are light interactive, and change with the ambient light and the viewers position."
"Nature has always been very influential in my work and acts as a hidden agenda and representative aspect in my otherwise abstract work. The preservation of our environment and appreciation for nature reveals itself through my choice of materials and form. Be that from recycled found or collected objects to vaguely aerial landscapes or organic shapes that can resemble bugs or floral pods. Each work asks the viewer to stretch their imagination and invites their curiosity in a struggle to identify their marks, engaging in the creative process through the act of exploration of the Art."
"My work depicts in-between domains that explore both internal and external spaces. Alternating between bodies of work in the studio, cross-pollination leads to unexpected relationships and associations. Each body of work takes as its starting point an element of figurative imagery, such as grasses reflected in a swamp, or the silhouette of a swimmer. Drawing from imagery developed at residencies and from lived experience, a symbolic language has emerged through which I explore abstraction and metamorphosis."
“Through textures and chemical processes, I explore the schism between synthetic and topographical; images and objects.”
"Science doesn’t know how we process color yet, so I started to experiment through my own experience. For many years I used only primary colors, and used very basic visual language to observe color."
As an artist, I tend to redefine the causes of my emotions, my thoughts, my feelings through imaginary maps for showing and sharing the human mental architecture.
