Christina grew up in Southern California and lived in Los Angeles for many years before moving to Boston in 2011. She spent two years in the mountains of Lesotho, Southern Africa where she was a Peace Corps Volunteer working on community health projects for youth and women in her district of Qacha’s Nek. Christina also works as an Interactive Producer on website and mobile application projects. Christina Balch worked closely with prominent Los Angeles artists J.J. L’Heureux and Laddie John Dill. She has exhibited around Boston and Los Angeles.</p> <p><strong>Awake Project</strong><br /> Awake is a memoir in daily, waking self-portraits reflecting on semi-conscious transition from sleep to awakeness. Artist Christina Balch takes a photo of herself moments after waking up every morning. She captures herself not fully awake, but also not asleep, in a state of foggy awkwardness and vulnerability, not completely in tune with one’s senses yet. Christina is inspired by feminist artists during the 1970s who used their bodies and lives as artistic experiments and documented the progress in photographs such as Carving by Eleanor Antin.</p> <p>The Awake series was started in July 2012 and continues today. Artist self-portraits are updated daily on the project website: <a href="http://iriseinthemorning.wordpress.com">http://iriseinthemorning.wordpress.com</a></p> </div></div></div> Sat, 02 Nov 2013 21:41:48 +0000 christina balch studio 46428 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org eHawk http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46421 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">http://eveninghawk.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>Accordionista, singer, illustrator, with a focus on the fantastical and the geeky.</p> </div></div></div> Mon, 06 May 2013 15:55:17 +0000 eHawk 46421 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org Candy Witcher - Artist & Art Instructor http://somervilleartscouncil.org/node/46408 <div class="field field-name-field-profile-website field-type-text field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">http://www.candywitcher.com</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p>"Art has always been a part of my life. From an early age my artistic family has inspired and motivated me to be creative and challenge myself. At twelve, I started oil painting lessons and discovered in college I preferred drawing over oil painting, and concentrated on the mediums of pencil, pen &amp; ink, charcoal, silver point and pastel. I received my BFA in Drawing from UNH.</p> <p>After graduating, I found I developed an interest in watercolors. I love to work with the effects of color, light and shadow. My paintings of glass objects such as marbles, jars of preserved fruits &amp; vegetables, glass candies and ornaments have improved my use of color and design. I am fascinated by the reflections and colors these reflective surfaces create and also by their cast shadows. To me, Art is a form of problem solving where you combine colors, shapes, textures and tones in stimulating and interesting ways to make harmonious and visually pleasing images.</p> <p>I love drawing and keep a sketchbook with me during the day to draw on the bus or at lunchtime. I consider drawing to be the most important artistic skill to master, and always tell myself when drawing to listen to my eyes and not my brain.</p> <p>My main focus in watercolor and/or pastels is the effects of color, light &amp; shadows. I am fascinated by reflections, colors on surfaces of objects like marbles &amp; glass jars and also by their cast shadows. Other subjects I enjoy drawing &amp; painting are portraits, animals, landscapes, spring flowers &amp; the American Southwest. </p> <p>I teach art classes on the weekends and love to see my students get inspired with the progress of their own paintings as they learn new techniques. In addition to the art classes taught from my home studio, I am the art instructor for the residents at The Somerville Home."</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-upload field-type-file field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><table class="sticky-enabled"> <thead><tr><th>Attachment</th><th>Size</th> </tr></thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"><td><span class="file"><img class="file-icon" alt="Image icon" title="image/jpeg" src="/modules/file/icons/image-x-generic.png" /> <a href="http://somervilleartscouncil.org/sacfiles/Well%20Preserved%20VIIc.JPG" type="image/jpeg; length=156173" title="Well Preserved VIIc.JPG">Well Preserved VIIc.JPG</a></span></td><td>152.51 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div></div></div> Mon, 21 May 2012 13:54:23 +0000 Candy 46408 at http://somervilleartscouncil.org
