Cristina Canale
Brazilian, b. 1961
Follow

Since the 1980s, when she came to prominence in her native Brazil as a part of the “80s Generation”, Cristina Canale has been combining abstraction and representation in her mixed-media paintings on canvas, exploring, over decades of evolving work, the history of painting and its continuing development. Her early work is muscular, washed in dark hues and filled with bold lines and impasto passages of paint. In the mid-1990s, she moved to Germany to study at the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts, where she began to lighten her color palette and soften her approach. Her current works reveal influences of Fauvism, Post-Impressionism, and Neo-Expressionism, while their subjects—landscapes, figures, domestic scenes, dogs, and cats—recall pre- and early-Modern themes. In all of her work, Canale merges the literal and the lyrical, celebrating the malleability and magic of her medium.
