Christine Casarsa fine art

“After over a decade of doing mostly abstract paintings, I am making a body of work that incorporates the human figure. I have always strived to find the intangible element that makes my paintings come alive and speak to me.  I do this through color and form, layers and transparency, space and intervals. These new paintings are a further exploration of my earlier abstract pieces while integrating the figure. I play with the image of the figure melting into the background and slowly emerging from it while at the same time both images exist essentially in the same plane. Working this way I see and encourage the images to emerge. In these images I find references to the constant evolution of our bodies and environment, the fleeting nature of our time here and the preciousness of every moment.”
