eyes

I capture human suffering via the human figure, particularly the face, as seen in my series of contemporary portraits entitled Eyes. More on my website: http://www.christinabalch.com/about/statement_eyes.html

naked trees

Inspired by the exquisite realism of Casper David Friedrich and modern multi-media artist Tim Burton, the dark, ominous aura of Naked Trees resonates with peoples own internal struggle. In Japanese flower-arranging, ikebana, Buddhist artists often use naked branches or even dead flowers to signify death and remind the viewer that death is a natural part of the life cycle. The dead bare trees in my paintings provide a similar reminder—that death is inescapable and suffering inevitable.

About my work:
As an artist I am always looking for inspiration. Most of the time I find it in the faces of strangers and their subtle expressions of suffering, gratitude, content, discontent, sorrow, etc. Recently the expressions of trees have affected me in a similar manner which is apparent in my latest series entitled Naked Trees. I gather images of Naked Trees from my favorite outdoor places ranging from parks in my neighborhood to the back country of Yosemite.
