Artist's Statement

Christine Palamidessi is known in the art world for a practice that spans writing, filmmaking, sculpture, and printmaking and relates the interweaving of memory formation and perception of time to the female form. Her work typically shows fragmented artifacts, myths and words that have been partially reconstructed using tactile traditional materials, such as paper, plaster and inks. In 2022 she was Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome; in 2017 Vistiing Artist in Rome and at Mass Moca. Her work is held in collections in the Dominican Republic, Italy, France and the United States. She is recipient of a Barbara Demming Award for Women Writers and an Urban Arts Award. Her public art memoir “Grandmothers” is engraved on a granite monolith at Boston’s Orange Line Jackson Square station.

Her installations and sculptures have been seen in galleries in Boston as well as in Chicago’s Woman Made Gallery, the Palazzo Bacile di Castiglione, in Spongano, Italy, and the Alfred Gallery in Tel Aviv.

Her figurative pieces are beautiful, sometimes humorous and imbued with spirits of the past .
