Christina Craemer (b. 1971, Philadelphia, United States) is a fine art painter and photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles. Craemer prefers to work in these media in order to harness her unique vision; to evoke a feeling or symmetry that may not have been present at the time of the original capture. Inspired by a deep love of light, and its ability to create subtle shifts of tone, dramatic contrast, or balance upon each object or being. The way light shapes our experience and perception, which in turn metamorphoses into a spontaneous emotional response.
The principal subject of Craemer's work is nature and the effects of it to influence a state of calm, healing, and connect us to the source of our innate abundance. Her art-making process currently comprises photography and oil paint. It is through these mediums she can further explore unique combinations of similar natural forms to realize her visual sanctuaries. This is important to Craemer’s work and how she develops the imagery from initial inspiration to the meticulous and labor intensive process of creating more complex and detailed works. Her play of scale allows for each individual to be fully immersed and present with her vision.
“Craemer’s images are powerful compositions that envelope the viewer in her personal realizations of organic forms found in nature that create a unique emotional experience.” - Paul Dahmen, Gallery Director FP Contemporary
Recent installations include the iconic Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons Hotel’s, and as part of collections in current shows in Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Maui, and Miami. Craemer’s work is held in the private collections of notable art collectors worldwide.
