Cores do Brasil

From May, 9 to June, 6 2015

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

A carioca, a person born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, enjoys life, has faith in the future and is a true optimist. This is how Christine Drummond considers herself. This carioca spirit is at the forefront of her artistic creation to be experienced by everyone looking at her work.

The artist inspiration comes from her direct urban and natural surroundings as well as from Brazilian folklore. Crowd scene is a particularly recurrent theme in her work, such as the beautiful carnival and market scenes series. According to Christine Drummond, crowd is a symbol of social exchange and diversity, from which arises a powerful positive energy.

The Ghanaian artist Ablade Glover whom Christine had the opportunity to work with in 2009, has had a great influence in the development of her work. She has captured his wonderful sense of texture from the exclusive use of the spatula. Christine has then gained an artistic freedom to develop a new aesthetic dimension: details have disappeared from the canvas to give power to spontaneity and to reach a new kind of abstraction.

Christine’s art is an intense sensorial experience, where vision, touch and hearing are constantly challenged. The use of vibrant colours, the bold strikes of the spatula and the underlying musical composition that drives her painting flow are the three intricate core elements of her creation process. Her art reflects a constant quest of happiness to give and to receive resulting in a wonderful testimony of her culture and heritage.
