Fury of the Swamp
CHRISTINA PETTERSSON explores resurrection and savage demise on a grand scale once reserved for history painting. Her multi-media work reveals a deep allegiance to the wilderness of a bygone era, the sorcery of the night, and the experience of a world in decline. It is a stage materialized from the Everglades of her hometown, which she has spent a lifetime exploring. Recent solo exhibition in Everglades National Park and at the historic Deering Estate on Biscayne Bay, reflect her lifelong passions in her hometown’s history and landscape, engaging the audience in an understanding of their own world on a deeper level.
