Artist Bio:
I divide my time working in my studios in New York City and Oslo, Norway; and for many years one month each year in Costa Rica.
I have exhibited in both Europe and the United States since 1983 including in 2017 the Personal Structures exhibition, a GAA and ECC at the Venice Art Biennale and many museums such as Galeria Nacional, Costa Rica; Norsk Skogbruks Museum, Norway; Norwegische Tage, Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany; EFTA, Brussels, Belgium; Bergen Museum, NJ; Paterson Museum, NJ; Noyes Museum, NJ; Newark Museum, NJ, as well as many art centers and galleries including in Brazil, Israel, and Argentina.
I am a member of Norwegian Association of Professional Visual Artists; Newark Art Council; National Arts Club; Sculptors Guild, New York; advisory board member to Everglades Artists in Residence (AIRIE), Florida; and Board member of Artists Talk on Art (ATOA), New York City.

Artist Statement:
Irene Christensen works intuitively engaging memory and emotions to produce art representing the full range of life from ancient to the present in streams of consciousness. She's known for her Concertina Book series which gathers iconic and symbolic tellings of her cognitive and psychological perception into shaped and narrow drawings.
