Hi! My name is Christina and I am an American magical realism oil painter living in Falköping.
I have been an active artist since 2011 and have shown (and curated) in exhibitions around the world.
My paintings are very much a conversation I have with the viewer. They are meant to be beautiful but I love beauty with a twist, something that makes a person linger.
Having lived abroad in many different countries throughout my adult life I have found art to be the one universal language I can use to express myself always. I love creating images which are naturally meaningful to me but also open to interpretation from the viewer. What does it make you think of? What emotion comes forward?
It is a timeless connection of artist to viewer that I strive for.
I am primarily self taught but I did take one semester at the Swedish Academy of Realistic Art in 2017!
I am currently working on a new collection of 10 pieces for Galleri Melefors in Linköping. You can follow that journey on Instagram: www.instagram.com/christina.ridgeway.art
