Christina Thwaites: Surrender
September 10 – November 5, 2021
Opening reception: September 10, 5-7pm
The Lord Hall Gallery at the University of Maine presents a solo exhibition of the work of artist Christina Thwaites, “Surrender.” Thwaites works is a direct relationship to her surroundings, the people, the landscape in which she finds herself.
The work begins with photocopies and historic photographs, creating fast and spontaneous drawings in order to ‘get inside’ the subject. For Thwaites, a painting is ‘finished’ when there is a balance between poetry and tension – both in the physical application of materials and the subject matter.
The exhibit includes interactive magnetic paintings which have moveable pieces and challenge boundaries by inviting the viewer to actively participate in the narratives.
Lord Hall Gallery is open from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday through Friday and is wheelchair accessible.
