Mitchell Community College in Statesville, NC, Features Works by Christine Eadie

Mitchell Community College in Statesville, NC, will present Christine Eadie: Photographs, on view in the Louise Gilbert Gallery, located in the Wallace House, from Nov. 7 - 21, 2013. A reception will be held on Nov. 7, from 5:30-7pm.

A native of Sydney, Australia, Eadie’s passion for painting and photography began at age 11. She studied painting at an art school for two years in Halkida, Greece, but is primarily a self-taught photographer. Eadie later moved to the United States and worked as a commercial portrait, wedding and fashion photographer.

Eadie’s artwork is based on the human figure and exhibits elements of dark humor, symbolism, and the supernatural. The focus of her work is to examine the link between the collective human memory and her own personal experiences and observations.

The creation of art is a form of personal reflection and meditation for Eadie. Her work aims to leave the viewer with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts about the fragility and instability of our superficially unquestionable reality.

Favoring a hands-on approach when creating her photographs, Eadie prints her own black and white images in the darkroom. She has embraced wet-plate collodion - one of the oldest photography techniques - as her new medium of choice. In March, 2013, Eadie was awarded a Lowcountry Quarterly Arts Grant to fund her next series, which she intends to exhibit in 2014.

Eadie currently lives and works in Charleston, SC, with her husband and daughter.
