JOHN CHRISTENSEN – BIO
John Christensen is an artist working in Austin, Texas. Born in New York City, he received degrees in Visual and Environmental Studies – and art – from Harvard and the University of Texas. Before 1990, he developed a body of site-sensitive work in rural landscapes of New York, Georgia and Texas. Since 1990, he has focused that sensibility on projects for the theater and the public place. He has created, in collaborations with choreographers, interactive props and theatrical environments for 30 productions presented in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. He has designed and built commercial spaces, and, unique and production furniture. Working in a variety of media he has exhibited around the country. He has completed 20 large scale public and private commissions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Albuquerque, Miami, Tucson, Portland and Fort Worth. Collaborating with other design professionals he developed infrastructure and interactive art for a municipal park. He brings to any project an unusually broad set of technical and conceptual skills. In recent sculptures and reliefs he has arranged motifs to evoke organic systems – branching rhizomes, biotic colonies, neural networks, wave interference patterns, polymers – clustered works with perceptual associations that make poetic connections between phenomena in disparate fields. He sustains a studio practice, going to his studio most days to make things.

I work with clay, bronze, and mixed media. Some of my work has its roots in ancient cultures, in which natural atmospheric forces are often personified as gods and goddesses. For example, in ancient Greece, times of day, heavenly bodies, and the earth were embodied in mythical persona. My pieces speak of the beauty and flow of the natural world, and they reflect my concern for and love of the earth.
