My Work

© Copyright 2022 Christina Bernadotte All Rights Reserved

As an emerging artist graduated from New World School of the Arts, I've featured here several series focusing on patterns, the language of my art. This is a collection of mixed-media pieces. I hope you enjoy!

Illusion in Black & White

Optical illusion is a series where I explore with three-dimensional objects in space. I focus on how they work in space visually from various angles that are deceptive and misleading to examine the boundaries between the actual and imagined.

Mixed Media, Acrylic,

wooden objects, Mirrors

Size: 18 x 24

Cryptozoology Animal Series 

These images shown are from a series derived from the study of botanical qualities of the Voynich Manuscript and Cryptozoology. I created mysterious creatures to explore those qualities and their patterns along with color to convey meaning behind the animal.

Mixed Balance

Mixed Balance derives from the concept of sacred geometry. Plato's teaching of the five platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron) are the core patterns of the physical creation basis of this work. I placed these five geometric forms in sequential order, based on the hierarchy set forth by Plato but in a mix of combinations.
