About

Christine Fiksdal Tijiboy 
My paintings explore ordinary, everyday subjects in a simplified way, focusing on lines, colors, textures, shapes, and how the forms fit into their environs. I enjoy unexpected color choices and surprises in perspective. I use traditional and non-traditional tools, as well as mixtures of materials, again in unconventional ways. Typically, I combine ink, charcoal, oil pastel, and acrylic -- in any order -- and also collage on occasion. The materials, as much as the subjects, can be the inspirational starting point. Left over bits of color in the pallet box, a vintage scrap of newsprint, magazine or an old photo, or a wine cork that would make a great stamp impression –any of these can spark the imagination. I like a painting to tell a story, or a snippet of a story. My work tends to travel through phases, from still life compositions to structures, landscapes, and figures, both animal and human. I love not knowing where I'm going with a project until I realize suddenly that I've arrived.
