About Christine Crockett

I am drawn to geometry, symmetry, pattern, and diagram, and my paintings are acts of locating meaning in them. This tension between the emotional and logical drives both the subject and the process of my work.

My process starts intuitively with irregular applications of texture and layers of color.  White frames forms, establishes patterns, or initiates ideas.  In the final stages, I use line to interpret and locate meaning. I rub out, carve back into, or stain the surface to reveal new reference points or to skew underlying structures. New marks, scars, and lines trail from forms and connect them. This navigation between the emotional, rational, and historical layers of a painting takes on an imperfect logic all its own. For me, this is beauty.
