Open studios March 2011

Canadian artist Christie Kirchner showed „Secret Futures“, a collection of drawings created by the artist during a 5-week residency at the Nes artist studios last night.  For the past month, Christie has drawn inspiration from Skagaströnd’s dramatic landscapes and its powerful mythological history to develop this new body of work.  The delicate and meticulous drawings in „Secret Futures“ use historic symbols and mythological references to explore themes of prophetic magic, our collective pasts and futures, memory, and loss.
