"I choose to express my deepest emotions: feelings, contemplation, happiness, dreams and hope through my paintings, a search which leads me to the power of the expression, where you can seek spiritual vitality, pure and deep in all senses."
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Cristina Kaschny was born in Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil, and has a degree in Psychology, having specialized in the field of clinical Psychology for several years, leaving little time for her artistic passion. Following a life change, she moved to Miami, Florida USA and turned her attention to her true passion. She knew that she needed to become an artist. The artist may had been prompted by her hyper sensitivity and perception of the world around her and the part she played in it. It was an inner call.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
The themes that the artist chooses, and the techniques she applies, are a step by step venture, not in search of a pictorial logic, but the revelation of a free and thoughtful spirit through the silence of colors that speak for themselves, interplaying of the opposite forces of abstract and figurative in unpredictable, yet powerful interactions, where the worlds between imagination and reality connect.
There are in fact, different parts of a production, hence the change of techniques applied on isolated groups of paintings forming an expression.
Everything merges into an impressionist-expressionist work. She wants her work to have the gift of enchantment at first sight, surrendering to the form, seducing the colors, and above all, creating a magical impulse.
Cristina's paintings are always the result of an observing eye, wrapped in a strong affection revealing a panorama full of color.
The colors sometimes become objects, visions distorted, unleashed from the world and human creatures..
Art is expression, expression is art, therefore the great mixture of being.

PAINTINGS PRESENT AND PAST
"Cristina is beyond anything I could have asked for. When designing the interior for my client's new home, there were several spaces that seemed cold and unlivable. Cristina's uncompromising style brought these spaces to life, color and spirit."
