IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO ARTIST…, CHRISTINA SUN.
Christina Sun is a young and emerging artist who experiments with a hybrid of surrealist landscapes and hyperreal subject matter. Her works draw from the ambiguity of the dreamscape, incorporating themes from fairy tales, literature and childhood memories. Transforming canonical tales and anecdotes into vivid, hyperrealist impressions of object and space, Christina paints the process of maturation and growth, reflecting the process of traversing from the fleeting spontaneities of youth into the more sombre landscape of adulthood.
Her current practice as a student architect at an architecture and heritage based firm invites an investigation of her artistic works into the realm of decay, conservation and the effect of time on living and inanimate objects. As such, the notion of transformation (and associated themes of fragmentation, memory, space and time) underly her compositions.
Christina was recently involved in producing a portrait of the late Joyce Tucker at 103 years old for Sydney’s first Centenarian Portrait Project Exhibition, a socially driven arts project showcasing 100 members of the centenarian population within NSW from the perspectives of young artists. Heavily interested in contemporary research into human identity and our place in the world as elements of the milieu, Christina brings together a network of separate paintings that when read as a collective, indicate the complex narrative of universal human experiences.
Christina’s work aspires to unite individuals through shared connections, empirical experiences and natural transcendences associated with living and feeling.
