orchid & clover, an architectural study of feral flowers
Artist Statement: These studies (completed nine years ago and never shown) were inspired by the structure of wild flowers. Their graphic nature references my architectural training and Native American form line design.
Portalis Statement: This is Christine's seventh show at Portalis, and with that in mind, I invited her to do a retrospective of her previous shows with us through the years. In reviewing her work, she rediscovered these drawings which she had completed in 2004 for an artist residency for COCA (Center of Contemporary Art). The drawings were done on paper and were inspired by tiny, typically insignificant wild flowers on a remote San Juan Island. Her plan was to use the studies for bigger pieces for her residency; however, COCA dissolved and the drawings went into a file. Although they are her work from nine years ago, they have never been shown, and we are delighted to have that honor. Show runs through end of May 2013.
