Biographical information/Professional background
Christina Maximoff began her studies of painting and art history at Saint Lukas in Brussels, continued them at Central Saint Martins in London and has studied engraving in Paris.
Artist and restorer of French antiquities from the 18th and 19th centuries, specialised in gold leaf, she works the material by mixing the ancestral techniques of gilding with contemporary materials.
“There is, in my work, an omnipresent conflict between accidents and calculated actions. Contrasts and the search for balance in movements create landscapes of impressions, whether physical or emotional. A soft, dark light created with transparencies”.
The paintings can be regarded as windows towards our immediate state of mind, which changes with our moods and the light.
Christina lives and works in Paris. Since 1999 she has participated in numerous exhibitions in London, Rome and Paris. Christina Maximoff was born in Saint Petersbourg 1976.
The Gallery, French Arts Factory, represents the artist since 2018.
