Artist Bio: Christina Johnson was born in Johnstown, New York, a small town outside of Albany, New York. The State University of New York in Potsdam awarded Christina her Bachelor of Art in Studio Art and her State of New York Teaching Certification in the Area of Art in May of 2006. She continued her education at SUNY Potsdam, completing a research thesis pertaining to the integration of the arts into the regular classroom setting. She was awarded her Master of Science in Education for the area of Curriculum and Instruction in August of 2007. In 2009 Christina was accepted to the Graduate Painting and Drawing Program at Louisiana State University in 2009. She was awarded her Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art in 2011. Christina has taught foundational arts courses at Corning Community College and 171 Cedar Arts, and worked as the Museum Educator at the Arnot Art Museum. Christina works at The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes and maintains her studio practice in Corning, New York.

Artist Statement: I began working in oil paint after an extended hiatus in 2015, I knew one of the most important components to developing a successful practice was play. To renew a daily practice with oil paint I started by playing with time. Thirty-second impressions of simple objects, ten-minute observations, thirty-minute studies—all wiped off the panel. These games served to rebuild comfort with paint-handling, glazing materials, and to redevelop the ability to portray volume and value in paint. Over time, I invested more time into single daily experiences with paint. I’m drawn to still-life paintings of food and flowers, and the narrative qualities I can develop within those compositions. Memories and experiences surrounding the connection of food and family, trips to open air markets, and the experimentation with new recipes have become a gateway to furthering my exploration and discovery of the properties of paint, color, light and texture. Working at an intimate scale has become a vehicle to establishing a system of consistent, meaningful self-critique and to create an intermingling of memory and new experiences.
