Fusions of Color - Contemporary Art by Christina Jarmolinski

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)

Experiencing her childhood years in Connecticut with her family of European origin, social differences and culture have always been an essential element of life.

Her father  an architect, civil engineer also studied art. Her Grandmother, a reknown pianist in Warsaw nobility circles and her mother's aunt, a designer of fashion were artists of their time. Her  first studies were in linguistics in Munich, Germany.  After receiving a Master in Languages, and a knowledge of the German language, she advanced to study art and became Master student of Professor Erich Schmidt-Unterseher. She also studied with the reknown artist Oskar Kokoschka in Austria.

The expressionist group "The Blue Rider"  greatly influenced her paintings. She has taught  art, art appreciation and meditation with art in  Adult Education in Germany and Paracelsus Healing Institutes in Germany, also establishing an Art School, the Malerhof in Germany. In the US she was owner and artist in galleries in Florida.

At present,she is also offering Zen Art - and  Being Creative and Adventurous with Acrylics and Collage.

Using various methods to convey her ideas and subjects, she mostly  work in series. The paintings tell of stories or fantasies in figurative or geometric shapes. 

Other means of expressing her art is in collage using coins and printed matter. She expertly combines these with paint and a new story is created. Rauschenberg  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Rauschenberg  called this "Combined Painting." Her paintings have been shown hanging next to Robert Rauschenberg.

Portraits are also a favorite venue for her. She likes to capture the spirit and soul of the person or animal. She will also take on commissioned works in Acrylics of family dogs, cats, horses.

All of her works are original. Limited Edition Prints are available of some of her works.

"For over 35 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 worldwide."

 

"You are cordially  invited to 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.

In the summer of 2017 I published my own version of The three Little Piggies and the big Bad Wolf with my art works illustrating the story. Published in English and German.

 I also offer Meditations and Art Classes. I use visual meditations to help my students express their visions or feelings.  Recently I am writing a book on Meditations and Zen Art."

 

Please contact me if you are interested in group art classes. Classes restart in September 2017."
