Another fabulous young artist is being released from the nest of higher education. Having her wings pruned, Christina Thomopoulos, like Onyedika Chuke, worked with Lyle Ashton Harris which is how I was introduced to her. Since then, we’ve often met to discuss art, both hers and mine, the passion for travel and the dichotomy of experience within various cultures.
Christina utilizes her body as form within space. She occupies designated territory while also attempting to awkwardly blend into it. The juxtaposition is delightful and it is in the awkward, self conscious moments revealed when she is at her best.
