Installation View



I showed all this red work in October at Shift Collaborative Studio in downtown Seattle. It was a bit awkward--I just hid behind my thorny ladder most of the time. At one point, a man with a funny hat announced, "Is there a Christen in the room?" I felt like an animal coming out of hiding. I know it's not good for sales and all to hide like that, but this work makes me feel pretty exposed on the cliffs of my heart. Anyway, after my friend Claire Mack's paintings of skin diseases sold for $900.00, I believe that anything can sell if the right person sees it...
