Bringing together a selection of new and older work, the exhibition focusses on the dialogue between human and nature, and the benefits it can bring to our mental and physical wellbeing. Christina’s practice aims to stimulate the viewer’s awareness of their environment, specifically their engagement with nature. Through her painting, she shares her own experience of liberation through nature. This offers her escapism, peace and solitude, in contrast to the chaos and complexity life can bring.
