Bio

Born in the French region of Brittany, Christine Robion has always been a painter. She has also been interested in photography, which she studied in Germany. Living both in Paris and abroad, Christine has worked in highly varied environments for years that in subtle ways have influenced her work and allowed it to develop and be affirmed by the rhythm of places. From Berlin, where she exhibited for the first time in 1978 to Guadeloupe to Paris where she lives now, Christine's path has also taken her to Cameroon, Cyprus, Greece and Burkina Faso. In each of these countries, she has worked and exhibited, all the while focusing on a style and perfecting a technique linked inseparably to a narrative project.

Statement

Upon a frame of superimposed images are found all kinds of paper: tickets, letters, newspapers, fragments of personal notes either handwritten or printed. From these texts a landscape emerges, one inhabited by a people created out of forms born of ink and color. All of these materials are drawn from the artist's life and become the form and content of the work, losing their temporal singularity through becoming immobilized into a present and coherent ideal.
