Christina Mrozik - The Feeling of Light
solo exhibition

May 4th - 26th, 2018

“The feeling of light is first and foremost a feeling. On a cold day, turning the corner and the sun hitting you with warmth. Can I notice that feeling with the same intensity I notice the brightness. Can I more fully inhabit the small experiences rather, the texture, the warmth, the sensation, than only recognizing with my eyes. Can I be mended through a larger unification?“

For her first Arch Enemy solo, midwestern-native and Portland, OR-based artist Christina Mrozik gets personal with a collection that focuses communication between the body and mind during times of distress. 

Her work has often used nature, and flora and fauna as metaphors for the human condition and it’s emotional, physical, and spiritual being. Metaphors about what we do and don’t trust, how to learn the physicality to our feelings and thoughts. For The Feeling of Light, Christina draws from her own experiences with distress and pain, vulnerability, and self forgiveness, illustrating the process with a series of images of transformation and awakening, bodies tangled and segmented, sorted out and put back together.. These ideas come from her own communications with her self, 


“While my body and I have conversations about the distress, I’ve also slowly built a language outside of words, a language of noticing, of piecing things together. When I draw, I try to find a way to make these questions available; transforming violence into beauty, into something the viewer can look at and sit with. My hope is this sitting will transform into a kind of listening to the quiet and the still evoked in the pieces. I want to create spaces for the less namable, but the deeply physical realities we all will or already face”
