Christina Jarmolinski - Fine Artist
As Cezanne, the Father of Modern Art once said “A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
"I believe Art is a form of meditation, connecting with my Inner Child and my Higher Source."
Creativity is ...“the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.” (The Random House Dictionary)
I experienced my childhood years were in Connecticut. My family is of European origin. They realized culture is essential element of life. My father studied, among other studies, art. My Grandmother was a reknown pianist in Warsaw nobility circles and my mother's aunt was a designer of fashion. It was clear I would go down the path of art. My parents, never-the-less compelled me to study linguistics in Munich, Germany .After receiving my Master in Interpreting I advanced to study art and became Master student of Professor Erich Schmidt-Unterseher. I also had the oportunity to study with Oskar Kokoschka in Austria.
The expressionist group "The Blaue Reiter" greatly influenced my paintings. I have taught art, art appreciation and meditation with art in Adult Education in Germany and Paracelsus Healing Institutes in Germany. I established an Art School, the Malerhof in Germany. In the US. I was owner and artist in galleries in Florida and Germany.
At present, I am also offering Zen Art - and Being Creative and Adventurous with Acrylics and Collage in an Open Studio format.
Using various methods to convey my ideas and subjects. I mostly work in series. The paintings tell of stories or fantasies in figurative or geometric shapes.
Collages of pictures, coins, printed matters, are other means of expressing my art. I combine these with paint and a new story is created. Rauschenberg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Rauschenberg called this "Combined Painting."
Portraits are also a favorite venue for me. I like to capture the spirit and soul of the person or animal. Commissioned paintings in Acrylic of family dogs, cats, horses make a great gift and can be passed down for generations to come.
All of my works are original. Limited Edition Prints are available of some of my works.
"For over 30 years Christina has been a part of the professional European and the United States art scene, winning many awards and participated annually in solo and collective art shows."
You are cordially invited in my studio gallery in the scenic country side of the Eastern Shores not far from Ocean City, Maryland. My studio is open to visitors by appointment.
Since living in Maryland I also offer Meditations and Art. I write visual meditations. My students then create their visions or feelings after meditating. Recently I am writing a self - help book on Meditations and Art. In the summer of 2017 I published a rewritten version of The three Little Piggies and the big Bad Wolf with my art works illustrating the story. Published in English and German.
