“Each painting (and object) contains an allusion to someone — an artist or possibly a nautical chart, a game or an experience — and these are manifested in her titles. The simplicity of the design is therefore useful as a device on which to hang the underlying concept. Although Christina Hutchings’ art is, on first viewing, simple in appearance, it is never simplistic… This is an art that is thoughtful, informed and intelligent.”

Artist Statement

I was born on a small island in the Atlantic Ocean called Bermuda. The inspiration for my work is drawn from the island’s unique geographic isolation.

I attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture after receiving a BFA in Painting from Tyler School of Art.  In addition, I have a   M. Arch. from the University of Virginia, Graduate School of Architecture.

After receiving the Master of Architecture degree, I worked in New York City at the architecture firms, Peter Marino Architects, Skidmore Owings and Merrill and other firms.

During this time I maintained my artistic practice and received residencies at, The Macdowell Colony, The Edward Albee Foundation and VCCA.

In 2008 I returned home to Bermuda to focus on my art practice. My practice is a synthesis of architecture and painting and takes the form of objects, collages, paintings, constructions and installations.

I have exhibited at The Bermuda National Gallery and participated in the Bermuda Biennials 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018. The  Biennial exhibitions have given me an opportunity to engage with international curators  and  to participate in the Bermuda National Gallery’s public programming.
