"Returning home, to the rooftop of my studio in Brooklyn, the city spreads itself toward the New York Harbor like an expanse of stony outcroppings and rivulets. As the weather turns cold, I am in the studio, building still life arrangements that are like tiny cities floating on an enamel sea. I am conjuring up milky fogs in the space around each season’s crop of flowers: tulips, daffodils, peonies, roses, zinnias, ranunculus, lilies."

- Christine Lafuente

"The sea is my muse in this recent series of paintings. I have sojourned these past summers to the rocky coast of Maine to paint changing atmospheres across the salty Atlantic waters. I paint deep mysterious fogs, buzzing harmonies of haze, and singing notes on clear sparkling days."

- Christine Lafuente

Pansies And Yellow Dahlia, 10" x 10", Oil On Mounted Linen

Moving between favorite places keeps what could be an insular process open and ever-changing. The memory, rhythms, and architecture of one place change how Lafuente sees the next, as these cumulative experiences keep her growing as she returns to the familiar. Whether depicting misty coves of the Maine coast, rooftops in Brooklyn, or seasonal flowers in the studio, Lafuente creates form and space through drawing, passages of color, and precise yet expressive edges. Her paintings revel in a joyful and luscious brushwork while creating a beautiful tension between moments of restraint and excitement.

 

Christine Lafuente is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and received her certificate in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  After spending years in Philadelphia where she was artist-in-residence at the Fleisher Art Memorial, Lafuente moved to Brooklyn and completed her MFA at Brooklyn College in 2004.  She has exhibited her work throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and had a solo exhibition in London, England in 2008.  Lafuente has been represented by the Gross McCleaf Gallery since 2002.
