A Knoxville, TN native, Christine Patterson has been long regarded as an Alternative Photographer. Through her travels in the U.S. and Europe, she has developed a style of “story-telling” in her photography. Whether the scene is an intimate pathway, architecture, street scenes, or horses, she layers each image with her unfolding story. In her art, she magnifies simple intimate moments so the viewer can explore secrets within evoking memories, hopes, desires, and questions.
Patterson has hand-tinted, sepia-toned images, printed on glass, marble, and canvas. Her work now continues to evolve as now she has added a new dimension using “rice paper” with layered imagery finished off with a high gloss resin. The images are like windows of time, frozen in the moment suggesting a feeling, a story, or a memory.
