Christina creates her large welded
steel sculptures exclusively from recycled materials. She goes
to scrapyards to find metal, and sometimes cleans up farmer's
fields of steel and old cars that have been abandoned. She feels
strongly that the recycled concept of her work has much to say
about the finished piece. She uses the steel as a source of inspiration
by seeing shapes in some of the forms, and tries to incorporate
found objects in her pieces that add a touch of whimsy or give
the sculpture an added touch of narrative.
Some of the found objects have been incorporated
into the piece in such a way as to move on their own or by the
help of the viewer. Her goal is to create more "inter-active"
pieces in the future, which has the effect of drawing in the observer
and allowing interaction and exploration.
