The work of Christina Burch www.christinaburch.com has been exhibited internationally and has been represented by Voltz Clarke, www.voltzclarke.com in New York City since 2000. Her work is held in major private collections, most notably the Mugrabi collection in New York. She has done special projects for Swarovski, Bazaar, Salvatore Ferragamo and others. Most recently her work has been on view at The Armory Show, Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Philip de Pury, the Watermill Center in the Hamptons, and is listed on Artnet. Born in New York in 1972, Christina grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and began oil painting at age 8. She went on to receive a B.F.A. in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994 and was a participant in the RISD European Honors Program in Rome, Italy. She traveled extensively in Europe and Japan and completed her Masters in Painting at New York University in 1998. Years later, pursuing her interest in energy and the body, she studied Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Swedish Institute in New York from 2006-2009. The eastern view of energy and embodiment has been very influential in her recent paintings which contemplate the sensual, poetic dimension of figuration in painting. After fourteen years in New York City, Christina relocated to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2008 where she currently lives and works. Read Less
