Christine Alexander is a contemporary artist whose life long fascination with color is evidenced by her work. Her often whimsical paintings are characteristically brightly hued. She works in watercolor and acrylic paints, and makes intricate cut-paper collages.
Her art has shown regionally in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
She lives with her husband, Larry Bennett, in East Meredith. She credits the serenity of the rolling hillsides surrounding her home, as well as close ties to the Catskills’ flourishing artistic community, with nurturing her creative process.
Alexander attended NCSU’s College of Design (Mpd.,Visual Design), SUNY Plattsburgh (B.A., English/Education), and Great Neck North Senior High School, New York.
Softly undulating hills surround me and create a welcomed calm.
Here, my light-filled studio has the constancy of a dear old friend, one whose intermittent conversation informs and deeply satisfies.
I am lost in making art. Rivers of color left by a brush gliding over a hungry surface, or arcs incised on paper with a sharp blade, thrill.
In my studio waits the ultimate luxury; I have the time and space to get to work.
