artist statment
Forsaken by humankind, ravaged by destructive competition for bodily space; cultured by violent dehumanization, and educated through the evisceration of my innocence, I share the stories of my fragmented, traumatic experiences through physical expression by painting mysteriously detailed situations and recreating rare sentiments through the aesthetic manipulation of sound. Many may see my art practice as beautifully strange and my music practice as eerily beautiful.

Nightmares from a tormenting past bleed into the reality of my privileged, dreamlike present. I believe undefiled beauty exists only as faint and elusive phenomenon of consciousness; an allure created by a perishable coquetry with temporary awareness and the everlasting recognition of our collective morbid fate in the infinite cosmos.

biography
CHRISTINA CURIEL IS CURRENTLY WORKING AS A PRACTICING ARTIST AND MUSICIAN IN NORTH COUNTY SAN DIEGO IN CALIFORNIA AS A COMPOSER OF MUSIC FOR FILM AND VIDEO MEDIA AS WELL AS VISUAL ARTS.  SHE HAS ALSO BEEN CONTRACTED TO PAINT MURALS AND PUBLIC ART WORKS BY THE CITY OF OCEAN BEACH, THE CITY OF ENCINITAS, AND AS OF THIS SPRING OF 2018, THE CITY OF VISTA AND THE CITY OF OCEANSIDE.  


BEFORE AND THROUGHOUT COLLEGE, CHRISTINA WORKED IN THE PROFESSIONAL MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR SEVEN YEARS. VALEDICTORIAN OF THE GRADUATING CLASS AT MIRACOSTA COLLEGE IN 2006, SHE WAS AWARDED SCHOLARSHIPS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA BERKELEY WHERE SHE WORKED AS A MUSICIAN, STREET PERFORMER, AND PSYCHEDELIC DRUG DEALER ON THE FAMOUS TELEGRAPH AVENUE IN BERKELEY AND HAIGHT AND ASHBURY STREETS IN SAN FRANCISCO. AFTER GRADUATING IN 2009 WITH A DEGREE IN THE STUDY OF ZEN BUDDHISM AND JAPANESE LANGUAGE, SHE BECAME ILL WITH A RARE AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE THAT CRIPPLES THE BODY, PARTICULARLY THE FACE AND HANDS. WITH A LACK OF FAMIAL SUPPORT AND FRIENDS WITH RESOURCES TO HELP, HOMELESSNESS, ILLNESS, AND DETRIMENT WERE PAINFUL REALITIES OF A DOG-EAT-DOG WORLD. 


DURING THIS FRIGID AND DESOLATE TIME ON THE STREETS, SHE MET A PRIVATE BLACK MARKET BUSINESSMAN AND THEY FORMED A PARTNERSHIP. THE DANGEROUS AND DESTITUTE EXPERIENCES MAKING UP MOST OF HER LIFE ADD EXTENSIVE RICHNESS AND EMOTIONAL CONNECTION TO THE PIECES SHE CREATES.
