Christine Cholowsky, Hamilton Member Since November 2013 Artist Statement Beauty, reality, versatility of life, nature, people, dreams, feelings, are all multi-dimensional, never flat, always of a certain depth and texture. These qualities are drawn from her own profoundly spiritual and innermost life experience, Christine transforms a flat canvas into multi-dimensional textured works of art. Engaging to both sight and touch, her artworks entice a window to the viewer’s own inner world, allowing the perception of one's unique identity, hopes and dreams. Using various combinations of acrylics, airbrush, found objects, natural elements, utilizing mixed media and sculpture techniques, Christine’s unique artworks combine the real with the surreal, merging dream with reality. She attributes her work to the deep passion with which she can transform life’s inspirational moments into strikingly beautiful and inspirational works of art. Having never gone to art school has not been of any concern for Christine as she feels it would have stifled and suffocated her own creative energy and style .Anyone can learn anything they wish to but when you are born with a gift it has no need to be taught , only nurtured by love , determination and passion .
