Screen printing lends a unique and colorful energy to a figure. Using a reduction printing method, I bring forms to life layer by layer on paper. I draw my inspiration from the wilderness and the creatures that inhabit the spaces that I recreate in. Through my work, I invite my audience to observe stunning patterns found in nature and to reflect on our interactions with the wild. Perhaps if we take time to find beauty in glimpses of the natural world, we can foster a greater appreciation for the web of ever-changing ecosystems that we ourselves are a large part of!
I create limited-edition silkscreen prints using a single screen and a reduction printing method. My designs are all hand-painted directly on the screen in the negative space with a liquid filler, and then printed with acrylic inks in layers. Each print belongs to an edition of 10-20 prints.

Christine June (°1975, Munising, United States) is an artist who mainly works with photography. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, her photos reference post-colonial theory as well as the avant-garde or the post-modern and as a form of resistance against the logic of the capitalist market system.
Her photos are based on inspiring situations: visions that reflect a sensation of indisputability and serene contemplation, combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric, humoristic elements. By creating situations and breaking the passivity of the spectator, she focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything at any given moment: the non-private space, the non-privately owned space, space that is economically uninteresting.
Her works demonstrate how life extends beyond its own subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction over the latter half of the twentieth century. It challenges the binaries we continually reconstruct between Self and Other, between our own ‘cannibal’ and ‘civilized’ selves. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a ‘corporate world’, she wants the viewer to become part of the art as a kind of added component.
Her works are often about contact with architecture and basic living elements. Energy (heat, light, water), space, and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways.

My Natural Mandalas project is focused on natural still life. These works explore the infinite complexity of the natural world around us. And just as mandalas, they provide a visual anchor for a brief moment of contemplation at every glance. My approach builds on shooting objects at macro magnification and using focus stacking, a technique which allows extreme detailedness of all parts of the final image. I work in the studio and use many tricks of studio lighting to present an unusual and intimate look into the plant’s character.
For a limited time, these photographs are available as 12" x 12" paper prints for $30 (shipping included). They are also available as metal prints, a medium that presents images with breathtaking depth and detail, and is also durable and easy to care for.
