the artist.

a little about ME.
 

Christina Sicoli is a contemporary abstract artist, Certified Pilates teacher, and award-winning actor + comedienne. Upon graduating from the Randolph Academy for the Arts in Toronto she continues to excel in film, television, and stage. Currently based in Vancouver, she spends time in Los Angeles and continues to pursue her passion for visual art through abstract pieces. Her ability to create and express through imagination and inspiration allows her to flow in process, explore through experiment, and take creative risks.

the Work.

I am constantly searching for new methods of expression and exploring various forms such as performance, painting, drawing, movement, and design. I strive to bring a unique perspective to everything I create.

My goal is to breathe life into stories through abstract works. I utilize my extensive knowledge and versatile background in the arts to create pieces and objects that showcase my deep appreciation for creativity, imagination and play.

My work ranges in size from small to large-scale pieces and is characterized by a simple palette layered with mixed media and touches of neon. I begin with a basic foundation of muted colours and build it up with additional colour, texture, and loosely drawn markings. I enjoy highlighting oddities, exploring the uneven, and working with non-symmetrical shapes. My creative process is playful and often leads me in unexpected directions. I use thick, transparent layers to allow the under-painting to shine through, creating intentional textures and loosely drawn markings. To complement or diffuse a colour, I sometimes use washes. I aim to continue to surprise and explore the medium, whether it be in a light, delicate, simple, effortless, intricate, or complicated style. 

ARTIST statement.

My penchant for storytelling on the stage and screen is as visual as the narrative expressed on the canvas. For me, painting is an outlet to embody the opportunity to be a character and develop a story in a different discipline. My inspirations are constantly evolving which influences the mood within a piece. Whether it be the change of seasons, the grounding of the ocean, the passion of dancing through space, the connection between others, or the revolving palettes of fashion, these inform my work and are the mediums that inspire me to be a creative visionary.

The actress and artist are together in every pursuit.

I CREATE WITH A SENSE OF P L A Y.
