Cristina Biaggi, Artist
Cristina Baggi has achieved international recognition as a sculptor of bronze and wood pieces. Using the theme of interconnection, she has also created large outdoor installations using natural materials and ropes. She has explored collage in the two and three dimensional form, and created works using the sacred spiral. Her work has been shown in more than 30 solo exhibitions and countless group shows throughout the United States, Europe and Australia, most recently in New York City; Bex, Switzerland; Bonn, Germany; and Vilnius, Lithuania.
Of late, Cristina has been sculpting commissioned portraits of individuals and their animal companions. To view some of her recent portraits, click here. To contact the artist for commission work, click here.
Cristina ventured into the art of illustration in Janine Canan’s recently published book, Journeys with Justine. The book is an original collection of tales describing the adventures and epiphanies of Justine, a contemporary seeker who travels from California to the Olympic Peninsula, New York, France, Bali and India, in search of her Self. Cristina’s illustrations add a light touch which helps connect the reader to Justine’s stories. For more information, visit www.JanineCanan.com.
A long term project of Cristina’s is The Goddess Mound, a collaborative effort she designed with the late Mimi Lobell (1942-2001), architect. This formidable outdoor sculpture was inspired using sacred symbols and astronomical calculations to honor the Goddess of Paleolithic and Neolithic times. The exterior is a grass-covered earth mound; the inside, which can be entered, is the negative shape of a female figure giving birth. Cristina is seeking a permanent site for The Goddess Mound at a museum, academic institution, sculpture park or open space that can be accessed by the public.
