Christine Rasmussen is an emerging artist and graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A. in Art Practice (with Honors) and Peace & Conflict Studies. She has exhibited in California, Texas and Vietnam and has a painting in the collection of the Hilbert Museum of California Art as well as works in private collections in the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Christine's paintings evoke memory, illusion and absence while exploring themes of femininity, boundaries and belonging. Her art is influenced by her upbringing as 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.
Recent honors and awards include a Chalk Hill Artist Residency; a commission for the prestigious Imagery Estate Winery Artist Label Program; selection for the 2017 stARTup Art Fair in San Francisco; and a feature 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 2018, Christine made her solo show debut in Los Angeles at LAUNCH LA, featuring her series, Fenomenal.
Christine runs her own art business integrating all the things she loves - creativity, connection and cooperation. In addition to painting, she is a writer, freelance consultant, curator and contributor to My Art Resources, an online artist resource organization where she writes topical mini-series to help artists improve their business practices.
Christine lives and works in Los Angeles.
