DIRECTIONS TO CHALK HILL ARTIST RESIDENCY
I'm thrilled to have been selected by a prestigious panel of art professionals for the stARTup Art Fair in San Francisco, April 28-30. It is a huge honor to be chosen out of a record number of applicants this year. This 3-day event is a rare opportunity for independent artists to exhibit in an Art Fair setting.
I will be exhibiting in Room 321 with my friend and colleague Shannon Amidon.
by Shannon Amidon & Christine Rasmussen (Room 321)
In contrast to the current climate of overstimulation and information overload, our work explores stillness, intimate moments and the in-between. In this time of social, environmental and political upheaval, our joint exhibition will offer viewers a moment of contemplation and introspection – a chance to reset.
Through layering and symbolism, the bold and graphic work draws an often unseen line connecting the past, present and future. Constructed environments and recorded moments, real and imagined, reveal reflections on the past and hopes for the future. Shannon Amidon’s muted palette and ephemeral imagery explores the cycles of life, calling attention to the environment’s transitory and fragile nature. Christine Rasmussen’s bright colors and strong compositions wrestle with boundaries, belonging and femininity.
The lack of human presence in both of our work raises questions about presence and absence, strength and vulnerability, hidden and exposed. The harmony created by the coexistence of these dualities invites the viewers to seek a fresh perspective.
In addition to our exhibit there will be 52 other artists exhibiting a variety of artwork as well as art conversations and special projects throughout the afternoon. To learn more and see a list of all exhibiting artists, go to: http://sf.startupartfair.com/artists.
