Christine Cover is an artist living and working in Washington, DC. Cover uses thinned acrylic on raw canvas, layering colors of varying opacity to abstract the experience of color relatedness. Identifying as a colorist, an artist drawn to and dependent on the expressive language of color, Cover has become increasingly interested in color action as defined by Bauhaus artist Josef Albers. Albers described “seeing color action” along with “feeling color relatedness” as first steps in using color effectively in one’s work. In their composition and movement, her current works represent the action of color, as well as the feeling certain colors impart. Through continued investigation Cover seeks to deconstruct and rebuild her understanding of color as both element and worldview.
Cover also translates her various skills into creative projects such as teaching, graphic design, interior design, and other visual arts. Please reach out if you're interested in projects or collaborations.
