Chris Cardellino

Christine Cardellino’s early work featured landscapes painted in oil, even as she studied the figure and regularly attended life drawing sessions. Her later work, rendered in acrylics, featured street and market scenes, many of which were inspired by her travels in Europe, Russia, Thailand, the Middle East, and South America. Area critics have cited her sensitivity to the nuances of light and shadow and the sensuality of paint, her command of brush and medium, and her contributions to the dialog of painting through her work.
