Christina Haglid Art

American, b. 1969

For Christina Haglid, there has always been an intersection between the process of writing and the act of painting in her work. It has somehow been her guide. Over the years, during the making of her work, that connection intensified as Haglid started writing short stories and flash fiction while taking online classes. She found the process of writing and painting so different in almost every way, but there was something freeing and generative in writing, which helps her painting process. The artist earned her MFA in 1993 at Cranbrook Academy of Art and her BFA in 1991 at Maryland Institute.

The Junipers - Highly Detailed Surreal Landscape, Watercolor & Gouache on Paper
By Christina Haglid
Located in Chicago, IL
A large translucent vessels floats upon a lake, so transparent that the wooded shoreline can be seen through this surreal boat. The artist treats watercolor much like oil paints, with layer upon layer to achieve a depth unseen in watercolor. The smallest of detail is apparent upon close examination. The piece is matted and framed in a simple white frame measuring 17.25 x 17.75 inches.

Ocean Echo - Illuminated Paper Lanterns Adrift On Ocean Waves, Acrylic On Panel
By Christina Haglid
Located in Chicago, IL
The fragility of the environment has always played an important role in Christina Haglid's work. As a child growing up on the East Coast, the ever changing seaside landscapes intrigued her. This fragile balance between nature and her subject matter is as delicate as a paper lantern set adrift upon the sea. "Ocean Echo" captures this delicate balance in a an exquisitely executed painting . Two paper lanterns emanate a warm glow, as they cast rays of gold upon the water's surface. This acrylic painting is on a cradled panel which is beautiful on its own or can be floated in a frame. Contact the gallery for framing options.

Steam - Nasturtium Flower Encased in a Paper Lantern on Wayward Seas, Watercolor
By Christina Haglid

"Steam", by Christina Haglid, is a small, exquisite watercolor. A single nasturtium is suspended inside a paper lantern, floating on turbulent water, the steam escaping from the lantern propelling it forward. The fragility of the environment has always played an important role in Haglid's work. As a child growing up on the East Coast, the ever changing seaside landscapes intrigued her. This fragile balance between nature and her subject matter is as delicate as a paper lantern floating on the ocean.

A boat nearly filled to the brim, but not submerged and able to drain its own contents carefully. A slide alone at night which will return to its purpose during the day. My intention is to not show the failure because I imagine all these objects make it through to better times. Allegories of survival. Someone comes by and finds the paper crane, the rowboat owners return and see their boat undisturbed, and the slide during the day brings joy.

Blue Thumbergia
By Christina Haglid
Located in Chicago, IL
Christina Haglid Artist's Statement I used to write a lot of poetry, and it has shaped the narrative process in my artwork. Now painting has replaced writing. Objects in the painting are considered like words placed on a page. I use flowers, manipulated objects, and architecture together in compositions to symbolize the subtle conversations and interactions between them. They are placed in imaginary landscapes that are inspired by actual places and travels. All the paintings are watercolor and gouache on stonehendge paper, and they are made up almost entirely of individual brushstrokes.
