Artist bio

Christine Browne was born on the 23rd February 1992 in the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean where she attended the St.Mary’s Roman Catholic primary school. At the age of ten she moved to London, England where she continued her primary years and attended her first secondary school year at the Our Lady’s Convent Secondary School in Stamford Hill, London. After three years in England, she returned to St. Vincent to complete her Secondary level education at the St.Joseph’s Convent Kingstown secondary school. It is there where she cemented her love for art and found a yearning to continue studying the craft for possible future professions. In 2011 she went on to pursue an Art degree at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad campus where she graduated from the Visual Arts Special course in October 2014. On returning home to St. Vincent she held her own Art exhibition entitled “See,” which displayed various pieces from her College and University collection. After teaching Visual Arts at a private school for four years she decided to really begin focusing on her art as a business and is currently Self-employed at cmdbART. In her artwork she enjoys delving into the stylistic realms of Fantasy and Surrealism. Her art primarily focuses on Biblical teachings and the spiritual and emotional growth of people in the real world, juxtapositioned into a fantastical setting. When it comes to mediums, she enjoys exploring the ways that drawing movements with pastels and pencils and painting them with acrylics can help shape the colours found in life, emotions and the journey of the soul.


Destruction, Construction



Artist Statement

This piece of art is one I created for my collection entitled "See," back when I was finishing up my University degree. I started off with multiple composition sketches and color swatches before deciding on this specific movement. The most challenging aspect of creating it was- tying in the most relevant passages from the Bible that dealt with the message I hoped to bring across the most. My work often focuses on a spiritual and emotional growth in a person/people verses the decline in moral and compassionate choices in the world all placed amongst God's will found in His word.

How it fits into contest

The story of this particular piece dealt with the spiritual and physical destruction of the world in recent times and the level of the faith and relationship with God that Christians are called to grow towards to battle the moral decay in the coming of the end of days. As the scene breaks down around the piece, the three central figures either stand away and rise above the changing times or are broken down into it. It ties into the message of Ephesians 6:10-20 that tells us all to be ready for the battle to come, wearing our armor which encompasses the word, will, love and sacrifice of God. We are all called to be people of faith and compassion who have the ability through faith in Christ to change the hearts of all those who are trapped in the deceptive ways of the worlds.
