Oil on canvas 18 x 18″
Christine Hales uses oils to paint glimpses caught and rendered in a semi abstract symbolic language. The process of revelation is experienced through the transparent layers of paint, and they speak of a purer, simpler world where city dwellers can go to restore and renew a sense of inner peace. A glimpse into an unfallen wild part of themselves restores sensitivity to nature and romantic idealism.
Christine has been painting since the 1980’s, always keeping within the painterly tradition and exhibiting consistently in the UK, and USA. Her work is in many private and corporate collections.
