About the Artist
Maria Cristina Jadick’s conceptually based art addresses suffering and redemption. Through a variety of media—photography, video, painting, print making and performance—she articulates and responds to the trauma and devastation of the present moment. Her work valorizes an appreciation for the genuine (as represented by experience and the acceptance of imperfection) over the more traditional aesthetic of beauty. It is through this focus that viewers can connect to the work and to each other.
