Born in Chile, Christina Cordero is an accomplished and refined printmaker who has exhibited in Australia and internationally for over 30 years. Highly influenced by the realms of music and literature, her unique printmaking practice creates a poetic visual language that echoes both an intimate, yet universal experience of the world and its every day rhythms. Drawing upon Latin-American ‘magic realism’ Cordero creates whimsical narratives that provide glimpses into a dream-like world, one that celebrates female stories and connections to nature.
Christina immigrated to Australia in 1973, after studying and teaching at universities in Chile and France. In Australia, she studied painting and printmaking, and in 1990 she received her Diploma of Fine Arts from the National Art School in Sydney. Christina’s work has developed substantially over her career and she has exhibited extensively across Australia as well as Canada, the United States, Spain and China. Her work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, University of NSW and State Library of Victoria as well as public and corporate collections in Europe, Singapore, Chile, Canada and the United States.
