BRIEF ARTIST STATEMENT

During a 3 months artist residency with PSQT, working with artist Hannah Sofaer who has developed a living land archive resource that addresses research in the context of the landscape, environment, science and industry, and during a stone carving course, Cristina  was involved in a process where the stone and its landscape opened a new way to develop ideas in relation to installation and the use of new media, inside and outside.

Developing a project, Paisajes Anhelados, ( Longed for Landscapes )  on the global consciousness of Earth and Nature, through stone as material and through the landscape of the Portland environment and its stone industry.

The residency  opens  a relationship between two sea shores, the Cantabric of Asturias in Spain and the English Channel in  Portland.
