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 my childhood years in Connecticut with my family of European origin, social differences and culture have always been an 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. My first studies were in linguistics in Munich, Germany. After receiving a Master in Languages, and a knowledge of the German language, I advanced to study art and became Master student of Professor Erich Schmidt-Unterseher. I also studied with Oskar Kokoschka in Austria.
The expressionist group "The Blue Rider" 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.
At present, I am also offering Zen Art - and Being Creative and Adventurous with Acrylics and Collage.
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.
Other means of expressing my art is in collage, coins and printed matter. 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. I also take on commissioned works in Acrylics of family dogs, cats, horses.
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 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.
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.
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.
Please contact me if you are interested in group art classes. Classes restart in September 2017.
