Christine Cover is an artist living and working in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington DC. She uses acrylic, oil stick, and pastel on raw canvas to experiment with floating marks or shapes of color, balanced with representational objects grounded on a hard-edge surface. She explores the relatedness between observation and feeling.
Living in Washington DC, Cover has become increasingly inspired by the artists of the Washington Color School, prompting her to employ a heightened sense of color to access the nature of a specific subject matter, while considering color a subject matter in itself. Her work investigates this tension between color and subject and color as subject — studying the dialectic between artist and experience, between one’s sensory encounter with a three-dimensional field and the colors, shapes, and marks that comprise its two-dimensional form.
