Inspired by the diversity and beauty of nature, Cristina Metelli’s work investigates the depth to which human lives are entwined and connected to the natural environment through subjects of belonging, spirit of place and nature’s vulnerability.
Her investigations draw upon her interest in the fields of both natural sciences and psychology, and the way in which people can be positively affected by their interaction with nature. Her abstract paintings mark the space between nature and human perceptions. Each painting depicts a moment in time, a unique experience of the natural landscape through a sensorial and emotional response. With a bold use of colours and paint application techniques, Cristina seeks to evoke in the viewer their own memories and emotions.
