Christina De Musée, whose
well documented career as an artist, has brought her to
the foremost of the Southern California art scene. She is
known for colorful, dreamlike figurative interpretations:
beautiful and evocative portraits, with penetrating gazes
that lock the viewer into a mood crossing the boundaries
Her portraits both confront and
sooth the viewer with powerful imagery saturated in soft
velvety colors that takes her visual descriptions of people
into the realm of sublime vision.
These frontal poses lead to profound
paintings reminiscent of Saints and courtesans of the Renaissance
and Medieval periods. Frontal and mysterious, they are simultaneously
emblematic representations of universal archetypes as well
as contemporary people.
