"I’m interested in the idea of the public versus the private along with processes of beautification and how these spaces can transform into alter settings and these practices into rituals. [...]I’m constantly questioning how we present ourselves and when presentation becomes masking. My interest in vulnerability, control and empowerment has led to a deconstruction and redefining of feminism that I explore in my work." -Christina Cornier
Meet the beautiful Christina Cornier. She's teeny-tiny, has rockin red glasses, is obsessed with mermaids, and happens to be one of the most telented painters I know. Her introspective paintings and self-portraits show women in raw, everyday settings revealing true vulnerability behind their movements. The viewer feels as exposed as the painting's subject.
