Visual artist, Christina Christensen – b. 1984. Living and working in Odder, Denmark.
Tactile fibers and natural materials. Nordic aesthetic and visual poetry.
Exploration of materials, light and rhythm through weaving – creating visual poetry and remarkable experiences defines the work of visual artist Christina Christensen. All projects naturally evolve around nature/biodiversity, circularity, and comments on the lifestyle of the western world.
Christina Christensen creates bespoke artworks for exhibitions, private homes and commissioned artwork for companies and others – including site specific artworks.
"The first time I warped a loom, it felt like I had experienced the same movements in an earlier life! It felt so natural – It moved me deeply."
