Born in 1983 in Temuco, Chile
Lives and works in Paris, France

Christiane POOLEY

The work of Christiane Pooley (born in Temuco, Chile, 1983) explores place as both a physical environment and an emotional state that transcends time and geographical boundaries. Her paintings mix memories with archival images to create poetic, liminal spaces and scenes that teeter on the edge of reality and dream. At the same time, the taut balance between vivid, concrete details and more abstract elements creates a palpable tension and slight sense of the uncanny that not only complicates notions of nostalgia, but also reflects wider complexities around origin and identity.
