Christofer Churchill (b.1971, Long Beach, CA) is an Ojai-based artist working primarily in painting, collage, and drawing. After graduating with a B.A. at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, he went on to receive an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, MI. His works are often characterized by a highly saturated palette and a process of intensely overlaid lines and scrawls which combine to form loosely identifiable images of landscapes, faces, and other organic forms. Churchill’s forms coalesce into a non-objective moment of deep meditation where historical and domestic motifs merge with the emotional resonance of materials. His work has been the focus of numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson, AZ; Martos Gallery, New York, NY; Franklin Parrasch Gallery, New York, NY; The Contemporary Museum of Art, Honolulu, HI.
