Christine Cover is an artist living and working in Washington, DC. Currently, she explores how certain spaces are perceived and inhabited. She uses thinned acrylic on raw canvas, layering colors of varying opacity to abstract the experience of a space into lines and forms like those on a map. This series of paintings represents a dialectic between artist and environment: between the sensory/affective encounter with a three-dimensional field and the colors and shapes, curves and collisions that make up its two-dimensional form. In their composition and movement, these works represent the action of occupying a particular space, as well as the feeling such a space imparts.
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.
