New paintings by Bozeman artist Christine Sutton will be unveiled during the September artwalk. In her latest series, Roots & Anchors, Sutton explores a landscape of nostalgia, melancholy, loneliness and hope. These otherworldly paintings play with images of weight and lift to create abstract portraits of mood, time, and place to examining her own real-word experiences. Christine’s images are rough, yet deliberate, exposing the hidden tensions and meanings underlying daily existence. From a small cast of common elements including the prairie horizon-line, the “sage brush ocean”, and open sky, Christine conjures up an emotional and contemplative space that is continually evolving.
10% of the proceeds from this show will be donated to Pintler Pets, a no-kill animal shelter in Anaconda, MT.
