Artist Statement:

Christine Alfery Working

I have never been able to color in the lines, am not a fan of coloring books, never make chocolate chip cookies the same way twice, so it makes sense that I have a hard time following rules when it comes to making art. Rules have a function. They establish a foundation from which an artist can expand, experiment and explore ideas in the pursuit of creativity, discovery and art. If creativity and discovery are what art is, and I believe they are, then art needs to fall outside of established foundations, lines, rules and boundaries.


I have no interest in creating something that does not make another think beyond their comfort zone.  I have no interest in creating something that does not depart from today’s thinking and imaginings. Art is a journey, it allows us to travel on new pathways. Art should be like water, fluid, indeterminate, distinctive.  Art should be always changing always moving always flowing in perpetual fluid motions.
