Cristina Canale

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 1961 

Lives and works in Berlin.


Cristina Canale’s painting reveals rather unique features, notably the way in which the figurative elements of the composition are always on the verge of impending dissolution into abstraction. Her landscape seem to portray, as has been noted previously, a liquid world, in which a few recognisable elements emerge between fields of colour that are juxtaposed in harmonic fashion, despite the wide variety of colours in each painting. The refined traces, especially of the tradition of European painting, have a flavour of everyday living: born in Rio de Janeiro, after establishing herself on the Brazilian scene as part of the so-called 80s Generation, the artist moved to Germany in the mid-1990s, where she studied at the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts under the supervision of the Dutch conceptual artist Jan Dibbets. Canale’s work answers, in its own way, to the intense debates that underlie late 20th century German painting and, in a wider sense, is tuned to the challenges of contemporary production, managing to transcend the specific aspects of painting.
