Cristina Getson Artist Bio:

I live in Toronto, Canada. I have an engineering degree and have been working as a visual artist since 2006. I work mainly with acrylic on wood panel. I am attracted to exploring abstraction, colour and composition, additive and subtractive processes, and working towards representing the ‘feeling’ of a time and place. The processes of layering, scraping, diluting, staining and fragmenting ultimately lead to the discovery of brilliant and unexpected patterns. I am drawn to texture, layers, and multiple interpretations. I try to achieve a state of un-self-consciousness in my painting by giving up a measure of control, and trusting the painting to show me where it wants to go. Current inspiration comes from Abstract Expressionists such as de Kooning, Gorky, and Joan Mitchell, as well as contemporary artists such as Cecily Brown, Peter Doig, and fellow Canadian John Brown.
