dear trembling partner, what
surprises you most in what you feel,
earth's radiance or your own delight?
For me, always
the delight is the surprise.
- from Matins, a poem by Louise Glück
Christen's paintings explore our relationship with the surrounding landscape using loose and suggestive strokes that imply an immediacy of encounter within which she wants the viewer to linger. Her current show records her attention to and delight of the land and animals in and around White Hall. Christen lives and works by the mountains on Sugar Hollow Road with her husband, four kids and flock of hens.
