About the Artist

Christina Pettersson’s work explores resurrection and savage demise on a grand scale once reserved for history painting. Her works reference classic mythology and literature, and include herself as the recurring female figure surrounded by animals, most particularly birds. She is known for her meticulous, large scale graphite drawings, multi screen videos and sculptural installations.

Christina Pettersson was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1976, and currently lives in Miami, Florida. She received a Fulbright Grant to return to Sweden in 2000, and attended the Valand School of Fine Arts in Gothenburg. She has received the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship twice (2006, 2011), and the Individual Artist Fellowship (2010). More recently she has attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Yaddo, the Deering Estate and Artists in Residence in Everglades.
