  • The Bather – Christina Fitch

    $700.00

    The Bather

    Gallery Wrap 24 x 30”

    Mixed Media

    This series draws inspiration from fading memories, moments in time, and personal narratives. The artwork is taken from old photos of my family, which will include 4 generations. The theme of the painting deals with memories. Each painting is distorted in some way to show the inaccuracy of our memories. Memories are reconstructions of reality, filtered through people’s minds. They are not perfect snapshots of events. When we look back at old photos we reinterpret them. Our minds have a different way of processing things from the past. Sometimes memories evoke more emotions than the moment it happened. The photo captures historical documentation of a moment in time. It does not tell the whole story and it doesn’t show what is truly going on in the character’s life. One can see what the person is doing and what they looked like, but not what they were thinking or feeling. Distortions are used to emphasize how the memory collected with the camera and can change over time. It also emphasizes how the photograph might not tell the whole story.

    Gallery Wrap 24 x 12″

    Acrylic Collage

    While painting on this canvas I did not have a subject in mind. I was more interested in the various mediums I kept applying so I would say I was working intuitively. As I progressed I began to notice circles appearing. I thought this must have something to do with my current life. My projects are many but never completed. I am running around in circles.

    Under the Ben Franklyn Bridge

    Gallery Wrap 36 x 36”

    Mixed media digital painting on wood panel

    The setting is under the Ben Franklyn Bridge in Philadelphia, where my ancestors are from. The figures all come from photos of family members taken in the 1950’s. Each individual seems to be happy, whether flying a kite, swinging, reading to a child, sunbathing, playing with a dog, or out for a walk. However, only the individuals involved know what was actually going on in their lives.

    Harper’s Bazaar

    Gallery Wrap 24”x 30”

    Mixed media digital painting on wood panel

    Harper’s Bazaar is of my Aunt Mac viewing an issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. She is in her twenties at the time.  She would go on to own a successful advertising business, something unusual for females in the 1950’s. What was she thinking as she viewed the magazine? Was she looking at the models and comparing herself? Was she looking for ideas? Was there an interesting article? While the photo is definite, only my aunt, through her memories and perceptions would have been able to tell the true story.

    Sunset

    Gallery Wrap 24 x 48″

    Oil on Canvas

    This is reminisce of all the sunsets I enjoyed while living at the foot of the Sandia Mountain.  Looking West from there the Rio Grande Valley rises to the West Mesa on which five extinct volcanos reside.  Every evening as the sunset builds behind them, they appear as sentinels guarding heavens treasured gold.

  • Clouds – Ruth Francis

    $1,800.00

    Clouds

    Gallery Wrap 24 x 48″

    Oil on Canvas 

    This painting was inspired by an awesome sky revealed to me while driving home one day in April.  I actually took a picture out my windshield at every red stoplight on Southlake boulevard.  The sequence gave me wonderful insight to how a storm is created.  I tried to build this storm in the same manner as the Great Creator.  Although my painting may be a great earthly creation, it pales in comparison to what I watch Him do.
