Everyday in May, paper, graphite, 2010
Christine Bisetto transforms everyday materials, objects and memories into moments that instill a sense of the sublime. In her newest body of work, Bisetto explores the aspect of time as it relates to her everyday existence and the practice of art. Days, Months and Years are recorded poetically on folded paper, mirrors, and in song lyrics. Mere dates to us, these records of time become a romantic reflection of Bisetto's daily life.
Christine Bisetto was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and has called Texas home for the past 16 years. She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions such as "Temporary Occupants," Eastfield College, Mesquite, TX in 2010, "Freeriding" by Subtext Projects at Texas Women's University in 2011 and "Small Ideas and Other Stories" a collaboration with Avery Powell and Jamie Christenson at 500X Gallery earlier this year. Christine is a member of 500X Gallery in Dallas, and one of the founders of brand 10 art space in Fort Worth.
