I work until i experience a sense of harmony amidst "quiescence" and "life". Not only in the image's particular details but also between these particularities and the totality of the image. This results in a way of working where the painting grows and changes during painting.
One very important aspect is the feeling of three-dimensionality of the image, in which you can always see my origins as a sculptor...
My search is to capture a longing, give the viewer the feeling to step inside the work.. and start his own journey within

  1. Others about her work:

    "Art, like science, can apply to many different subjects, sociology, psychology, even art itself.
    Most of such contemporary art fades in meaning to merely break the monotone pattern of wallpaper.
    Christine's art is of the highest order, it tells us about, and let's us experience a deeper realm of reality. One just has to look and step in..." (2002)

    Un equilibrio precario tra realtà e immaginario, nel quale la metafisica e il simbolismo si uniscono a creare il realismo delle sue tele. L'opera di Christine Boré è decisamente scultorea, la costruzione prospettica non viene mai meno e l'unione dei diversi elementi conferiscono una particolare magia alla narrazione delle vicende.
