Waller&Wood guest exhibition: Christina Romero Cross

We are delighted to feature the work of painter Christina Romero Cross for this Waller&Wood guest exhibition. Christina paints with oil on wood and her work is concerned with the effect of light and weather on land and seascape. Her paintings are vibrant and encapsulate the power of nature, and how changing light patterns create drama and mystery.

Lightfield paintings: introduction by Christina Romero Cross

Portrait of Christina Romero Cross

My aim is to ‘find’ a painting, I do not often know where the process will lead me but there is always a point at which my instinct tells me a painting is resolved and I step away. This sometimes takes years.

I spent the early part of my life in a houseboat on the San Francisco Bay and the memory of light bouncing and rippling off the water has certainly influenced my vocabulary – it is a version of that light that I strive to pull through to the surface of the painting. My other main influence is the landscape of Bodmin Moor where I now live. With miles and miles of views, the horizon is the prominent feature of the landscape and the light is more brooding and bruised but no less significant than the rippling sunshine of my childhood.

You can find more of my work via my website, and on Instagram.
