Christine Warner is a contemporary artist, working in Galena, Illinois.  Her paintings are typically large-scaled acrylics of stylized figures.

"My work explores  themes of self-identity and authenticity.  Specifically, the questions of, “who am I?”; “am I on the right path?”; “am I being true to my values?.”  For many of us, this process of self-reflection can be full of tension.  To express this, I paint with vivid complementary colors, set off with metallics.  I also build up the paint on the surface of the canvas to create a thick, lush texture.  I believe this creates visual energy that may engage the viewer in their own internal dialogue”.
