From The Red Head Gallery:

Christina Sealey’s practice is based primarily in drawing, painting, and sound. Through her work she has been examining the relationship between identity and environment: the intimate connections between people and the places they inhabit. Auguries and dreams is a collection of new paintings that explore the intangible and mysterious qualities of "night" or "darkness”, a dominant theme in Christina's recent work. These paintings play with the symbolism associated with “night” – in particular the association with the unconscious, transformation, and absence / presence. She is particularly interested in how these ideas influence and intersect with the physical experience of night and darkness. Moments of tension, indecision, transition, and mystery are recurring themes. The play between representation and abstraction emphasizes the themes of mystery and ambiguity, blurring the distinction between the real and the imaginary.  

Christina Sealey is an artist and musician based in Hamilton, Ontario. She holds an MFA in Drawing and Painting from the Edinburgh College of Art. Christina has exhibited throughout Canada and the UK in public and commercial galleries, and she has performed her music in many countries around the world. Her work is represented in private, corporate, and public collections. She has been awarded grants for her painting and audio work from both the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts and from private foundations including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Christina is an assistant professor at OCAD University.
