Christine Peloquin
Eustis, Florida

Christine is a mixed-media artist who combines figurative realism with quilt-like collage. The patchwork quality of her artworks in many ways alludes to the emotional depth of her subjects. Each portrait is seen through layers of fabric and paper, which can be interpreted as a visual metaphor for the multi-faceted modern woman. “My intention is to weave an autobiographical tapestry that addresses universal issues such as spirituality, sexuality, motherhood, and self-awareness,” Christine explains. She finds joy in deciding, through her layering, what to cover and what to reveal.

Thank you so much Nikki! Yes, chapters of our female experience contain the positive and the painful experiences. Acknowledging that history (in art layers and life) makes us much more interesting and complex characters! My panels have a 3" wood frame on the edges. The backs are in essence "hollow" and wired for hanging. Thanks for your questions! Christine

Thanks Christine for sharing your beautiful work. We all DO have so many layers as women. For me, I think your collages would end up about a foot deep with my many layers/chapters/pain, etc. (Just kidding. We all have our experiences which make us who we are which of course includes all aspects.) Anyway, thanks again. Quick question: The 3" depth of the wood, is that just the "added frame" around the wood panel, or is the entire painting done on 3" thick wood which is really heavy. I see 24 lbs. as final weight, but did want to know for hanging purposes the depth and weight. Thanks when you get a chance. Nikki
