Christina Hall Strauss

My artwork explores the rhythms, tensions and harmonies of my sensory perception of the world. In my work I aspire to invite the viewer into my contemporary botanical and landscape images, to experience with me the interplay of color and movement, form and texture in nature.

Born in Tucson, Arizona, and having lived in Santa Fe since the mid-1970s, I am aware of the Southwestern landscape permeating my interpretation of color and shape. The New Mexico seasons, flights of birds, native flora, the Río Grande and other rivers and arroyos continually reveal their patterns in my paintings. Travel intensifies my appreciation of the many forms and feelings in the world of nature. Various Asian aesthetics in crafts and painting have also become a great influence in my work.
