Christine Ruksenas-Burton’s body of work is composed of hard edge color field linear abstractions, a style rooted in a movement that began in New York City in the 1940s pioneered by Mark Rothko, Josef Albers, Carmen Herrera, Fanny Sanin, Barnett Newman, Ellsworth Kelly and Clyfford Still.  Growing up in Australia, she enjoyed a playground of raw beauty and rich colors in each season.  Her paintings are conversations of colors inspired by her homeland as well as modern art, minimalism, modernist architecture, and design.  She uses acrylic paints for her work after meticulously taping each canvas.  Christine’s work has been compared to that of Gene Davis; however, her philosophy is rooted in numerology and color therapy.  Christine has been commissioned by corporate and private collectors, exhibited at corporate and community sponsored exhibitions across the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Art Expo NY, Red Dot Art Fair at Art Basel Miami Art Week, Santa Fe Art Expo, Dallas Art Expo, she has private collectors in Australia, Washington DC, New York City, Orlando FL, & Gallery representation in Miami, Florida.  She studied and worked in Arts Administration, Development, Fundraising and Promotions Management, freelance publicist, photographer & biographer.
