Christine Sandifur – Chasing Patterns

Christine Sandifur has been a member of the Fine Art in the Garden Group since 2008.  She met Jean Harney when they were both exhibiting at Sunday at Shemer.  Christine has been a printmaker for over 20 years.  Her initial love for the artform started when she attended Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle Washington.  She recieved a BFA in printmaking and sculpture. 

Her most recent series about pattern is an ongoing exploration that has kept her intrigued for the past four years.  With each new set of prints she delves deeper into patterns, making patterns, and their meaning. 

Christine’s artist statement:

One of the greatest attributes of human intelligence and survival is the ability to recognize patterns and abstract symbolic representations, even when they occur in contexts different from that in which we originally learned them.  Practically all ancient civilizations had a good understanding of the recurrent patterns, and subtle changes of their environment.  Pattern recognition is a cognitive process much like intuition. My pattern monoprints are a celebration of the patterns that inhabit my mind and make up our modern lives.

If you are in the Phoenix, AZ area over the next couple months, please stop by one of the following locations to view her prints on exhibit.  And, don’t forget our sfine art show and sale in the garden at the Shemer  Art Center in March 2013!
