Painting is my way of expressing an emotion, or capture a moment in time. I have always been involved in the arts.
I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, and in numerous galleries throughout Southern Oregon. I also show my work at the Saatchi Gallery in London. I am a member of several art organizations that provide me with much inspiration.
My father was an artist and my great, great grandfather was George Inness an artist of the Hudson River School. I have taught art both privately and publicly and received training through the many workshops I have taken around the U.S. and Europe, including those with Harley Brown, Katherine Chang Lou, Frank Webb, Robert Burridge, Betty Carr & Howard Carr.
My paintings are in many exhibitions and can be found in both Canada and England.
Some of the things that other's say:
Christina Madden is an abstract impressionist painter from Medford, Oregon with a love for light and color that shows in her landscapes , florals , scenes with people and more. From vineyard landscapes to castles on the Rhine, this artist’s work with color in her paintings is both playful and profound. As she delves into her primary colors, she creates her own worlds using her imagination and remembered scenery from her travels. Her work with color leads to a wonderful emphasis on light in her paintings, resulting in the many landscapes with glowing sunrises and sunsets, glittering waterscape scenes and floral still life paintings in her portfolio. Christina’s evolving style of abstract impressionism gives us a real-world subject with colors brought forward to enhance the viewer’s appreciation for the artist’s view of the extraordinary world around us. Painting in acrylic, oils and mixed media, she reveals the beauty in all she sees and leaves a lasting impression of light and color, creating a mood that stays in the heart and mind of her viewers.
