Christina will be joining Giddens Gallery on February 1, 2019 at which time her work will be posted.  Be sure to check back then to see her great and unique work.

Christina Fitch is currently pursuing her Master of Fine Arts in painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design and is to finish in Fall of 2019. She graduated from Texas Woman’s University with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education in 1994. Fitch is a mixed media, figurative artist. She has taught high school visual art for twenty-three years and is currently teaching at Timber Creek High School in Keller ISD. She resides in North Richland Hills, TX.

In her work she wants to communicate that the sublime of nature causes us to look beyond the pain and drudgery of our own lives, and points to something greater than ourselves.

She uses materials gathered from nature such as foliage, bark, wood, seeds, burlap, and embroidery thread.  She incorporates these organic materials with acrylic and oil paint, powdered pigment, photography printed on transparent film, and use encaustic to assemble these combined materials into a working composition.

            Her current series draws inspiration from fading memories and personal narratives. The artwork will use layers to explore family experiences and memories. She is also interested in exploring how family dynamics stretch across generations and impact future generations.  How did the relational complexities of her grandmother and mother filter down through her into her relationship with her children?  She sees these relationships as layers that makes us who we are.  She hopes to express this through the layering of images using a variety of media.
