Cristina Getson is an abstract expressionist painter based in Toronto, Canada. Working with acrylics, Cristina’s work is imbued with vibrant colors and influenced by the pull of opposites - smooth and rough, light and dark, indefinite and detailed. It is a dialogue between past and present in order to capture not the physical aspects of a moment in time, but rather the feeling of it. The application of paint is made visible through the brushstrokes and marks left behind; it is a joyful reveling in the materiality of the paint itself. Cristina has exhibited in Canada and across the United States, and was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence at Palazzo Monti in Italy, in 2018.
