In Irene Christensen's paintings, art becomes a magical act. Her sinous images repeat, loop in on themselves and are transformed into words and images in poems.

Her paintings show that life is strange and quirky, and contradictory, too. Tragedy and comedy are not played out in separate theaters, but co-exist, side by side.

My paintings are windows onto a world, a surreal world, where images repeat and are transformed into words within poems.

I create personal iconography; I transform simple forms into my own mythology. And although I paint figures and the landscape, they are always symbolic and my colors always set moods rather than imitate nature. In these oil paintings, I meld the familiar and the possible through sensual intuition.

Ino

In Greek mythology, Ino committed suicide by throwing herself into the sea. Instead of dying, she was transformed into a sea deity.

In the Norse variant, Ino was known as a firm ruler and a wanderer.

My Ino is Queen of the Earth, endlessly transforming herself while waiting for the war to be over.

My paintings deal with women's issues. My work is symbolic and it addresses women's split role in life as nurturing and working mothers, as well as aging.

In my series Pyramid Paintings, I use 3 to 7 canvases stacked together to tell a story. The shape itself becomes a passageway to womens sexuality.
