Christine Ruksenas-Burton’s body of work is composed of hard edge color field linear abstractions, a style rooted in a movement that began in New York City in the 1940s pioneered by Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, and Clyfford Still. Growing up in Australia, she enjoyed a playground of raw beauty and rich colors in each season. Her paintings are conversations of colors inspired by her homeland as well as modern art, minimalism, modernist architecture, and design. She uses heavy body acrylic paints for her work after meticulously taping each canvas. Christine’s work has been compared to that of Gene Davis; however, her philosophy is rooted in numerology and color therapy. Christine has been commissioned and exhibited at corporate and community sponsored exhibitions across the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and private collectors in Australia. She studied and worked in Arts Administration, Development and Promotions Management, freelance publicist, photographer, and biographer.
