Christina Madden is an abstract impressionist painter with a love for light and color.
Much of the work she does starts from abstract washes. After looking at the canvas, an image or idea will usually come to mind. When doing a painting she works at combining both impressionism and abstraction. She has learned to let the paint speak to her as she works. It is her hope that the work she does speaks to you as well and gives you joy.
“I paint to express an emotion or moment in time. I paint a variety of subjects in many mediums and find in each a joyful challenge; I’m currently experimenting with abstract expressionism. I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, in galleries throughout Southern Oregon and the Saatchi Gallery in London. My father was an artist and my great-great-grandfather was George Inness, an artist of the Hudson River School.”
