Christina M. Tedesco Artist Statement

Preview in new tab(opens in a new tab)

My work deals with the contrast between balance and imbalance, control and the lack there of. Specifically, I explore the movement of the human body through space and time. My interest in the nature of the human form comes from living with cerebral palsy – a physical disability.

Over the years I have developed two figures that have allowed me to show how I see my body. The two figures often look like an adult helping a child or two friends. One figure acts as my cerebral palsy, the other figure as my personality. The figures can stand alone or become one. My body of work tells a story, with many small moments making up a larger whole. All my paintings, drawings, and illustrations are pieces of this story.
