Christine Rendina Artist Bio:
Christine Rendina received a BFA in photography from Columbia College, Chicago, and it was there that she learned the complex gum bichromate process, invented in 1890 by Robert Demachy, an influential Parisian painter and photographer. After graduating, she worked as a theatrical photographer in Seattle, and began to develop her personal work exclusively using the gum bichromate process, in a series titled "Nude in Landscape". She exhibited her work on the West Coast and then moved to London in 1985, where she continued using the technique both in her artwork and in her commissions by a wide range of British clients in design and advertising . She began exhibiting her personal work in London and France and while traveling in Spain, began her ongoing Spanish Landscape series. She also taught as an visiting artist throughout the UK, and gave conferences on the historical and contemporary aspects of the technique. In 1989, she was commissioned by architects, designers and corporate clients to produce annual reports, restaurant murals and packaging in Madrid and Barcelona and in 1991, moved to Madrid, where she is currently living. She began her series, Greek mythology, inspired by the ancient mythological statues while traveling in Greece and Italy,and has exhibited throughout Spain.
