Christina Haglid

b. 1939,  Wilmington, DE


Christina Haglid’s history with writing poetry has shaped the narrative process in her artwork. She views objects in the painting like words placed on a page. She composes flowers, manipulated objects, and architecture together in compositions to symbolize the subtle conversations and interactions between them. Her imagery is placed in imaginary landscapes that are inspired by actual places seen throughout her travels. Haglid always creates her paintings with watercolor and gouache individual brushstrokes on stonehendge paper.
