Christina St. Clair

Christina St. Clair’s narrative paintings and installations explore social, cultural, and environmental practices from a global perspective.  Her recent work examines Foodways, defined as the eating habits and culinary practices of a people, region or historical period. This series focuses on individuals working in a kitchen environment, preparing dishes relevant to their respective cultures.  The pieces tell stories by combining images of subjects and their environments with actual objects, cooking ingredients, and surfaces that they have touched or used. 

Christina’s current project explores her growing interest in climate change and the incremental environmental changes that are taking place all around us on a global level. 

Her recent works have been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad, including the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, the CAMAC Centre D’art in France, and the United States Embassy in Costa Rica.
