Christina Watka is a creative soul that I had the pleasure of being introduced to through a mutual friend. She sings, writes, installs, photographs, among many things, but most importantly she makes. Her work emits a feeling much liking being around her feels. There is a vibrance and romance to her art that is so passionate it’s hard not to want to be around.
Currently she has two of her installations on view in South Boston’s Twelve Chairs. Lace Chandelier is a large chandelier made of old lace and found garments. 3 Dimensional Wallpaper was made with the specific space of Twelve Chairs in mind. It utilizes the entrance to the space and mimicks a pattern similar to wallpaper. It is made of dried flowers and leaves, lace cut from old garments, curtains and tablecloths, pins and lavender.
Christina’s solo show Patience, Persistence, and Process is opening at Voltage Coffee and Art located in Cambridge, MA October 28th and the show will be up for 7 weeks. Her installation art makes such an impact in person so I recommend stopping by and checking it out.
