Artist - Christine Pike

Beauty is far from skin deep. True beauty comes from a spirit that is at ease with itself and knows itself completely.

I take my inspiration from the natural world and from folklore. Nature is uncompromising, sometimes cruel, but never dishonest. Folklore teaches us ancient wisdom through the telling of stories. Truth and wisdom are the companions of all those prepared to see themselves as they really are. In my work I like to play with ideas that explore the intimate dance between the two.

My pieces tell stories about what happens when we drop our social masks and reconnect with the Wild Dance of life. Sometimes my figures disguise themselves as animals. Occasionally they are caught in the act of transformation; part human, part beast…
