Christi Furnas is an oil painter who seeks to reveal a nuanced emotional portrait with color and brushstroke. She uses bright colors to attract and draw the viewer in to explore and discover the subtext of each piece. Her work is figurative, capturing everyday moments such as reading a book. These familiar scenes are meant to evoke thoughts of comfort yet curiosity, a longing to know the story behind the bold pigments. Christi uses cadmiums to bring a feeling of warmth to the surface.
