My name is Christina Reiter. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. My art is particular influenced by the eyes of a child,which I have kept since my growing up. Those eyes that have swallowed then-and are reflecting now-the woods and meadows, mountains and valleys of my home in Austria.It is a deep,heartfelt happiness I want to express in my work. My love to the nature and my deep emotions. It is also the impressions of foreign lands and the permanent searching for beautiful places in the nature. Most of my paintings and sculptures have a flowing structure.It`s a symbol for flowing water,which means a process of cleaning and healing to me. My paintings are mostly abstract and colorful.I do not paint them.I work them, by spreading and abrading colors in many layers.I named my style "Grattage". It gives the colors a optical depth and much brightness. Christina Reiter was born in Austria in 1969. Technical art education in Austria in a technical school for woodcarving.
