Christina Rice’s work has been shown in galleries, juried shows and festivals in the United States.  For 30 years, she created hyperrealist portraits that were often mistaken for photos but were really done in dry media like charcoal, graphite and pastel.  Then she started craving color & texture, and started working in mixed media using fabric, hand-made papers, beads, hair, anything that contributes texture & brilliant color, concentrating on one color per piece.  Her themes are based on mythology and historical characters & she seeks to beautify the ordinary and express it as an enduring myth.  Her artistic influences include Klimt, Hiroshige, Henri Rousseau, Erte, Rauschenberg, the pre-Raphaelites, and late 19th/early 20th century fairy tale illustrators.
