About the Artist
Christina Shurts accesses a trove of images from memory, relics of her childhood, personal and found photographs, and real and imagined home décor magazines to create paintings that address feelings of nostalgic longing for a remembered past and a hoped for future. She transforms familiar places of relaxation and luxury such as tree houses, seaside amusement parks, oceanfront boardwalks, and long-deserted vacation cottages and resorts into alternate realities that are both inviting and unsettling while also projecting a timeless quality. A resident of Huntington Beach, CA, Christina has participated in group shows in Southern California at the Torrance Art Museum, Pacific Design Center, LA Municipal Art Gallery, Lawrence Asher Gallery, LOFT Gallery, and I-5 Gallery, as well as at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
