Christine Rasmussen is a Third Culture Kid – she was born to American parents in Pakistan, and has lived in 13 cities across Pakistan, Vietnam and three of the United States. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in Art Practice (with Honors) and Peace & Conflict Studies. Christine has exhibited in California, Texas and Vietnam and her works are in private collections in the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Christine’s paintings evoke memory, illusion and absence while exploring themes of boundaries, belonging and femininity. She has been awarded a 2017 Chalk Hill Artist Residency, and has been commissioned to create a wine label for the prestigious Imagery Estate Winery Artist Label Program. Christine was selected for the 2017 stARTup Art Fair in San Francisco, and featured on Mat Gleason's show Modern Art Blitz as one of "the best, brightest and most brilliant in contemporary art in and around Los Angeles." In 2015, her painting, Over, was one of 41 works chosen out of over 1200 submissions for the Los Angeles Art Association’s 2015 Open Show featuring the “very best in emerging art.”
Now based in Los Angeles, Christine is a contributor to Art & Cake, a contemporary art magazine with a focus on the Los Angeles art scene, and to My Art Resources, an artist resource organization where she writes topical mini-series to help artists improve their business practices. When she's not painting or writing, Christine enjoys viewing art, reading murder mysteries, writing snail mail, brewing beer, practicing yoga and hiking.
