Lot 457 - Christina Burch - Butterfly Dreams
Acrylic on Paper
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Signed on verso
Christina Burch’s paintings are inspired by a variety of art and cultural contexts, including her extensive travels in Italy, Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine education at the Swedish Institute in New York, Japanese and Tantric painting, and passion for Contemporary Art. Characterized by vivid color, stylized ornament, clean surfaces, lyrical imagery, and a poetic, sensuous and magical quality, Burch has gained an important global clientele for her commissioned work. The Eastern view of energy and embodiment has been very influential in her recent works which contemplate the sensual, poetic dimension of figuration in painting.
