Christen Yate's paintings explore the relationship with agrarian landscapes and livestock. Focusing on the Blue Ridge Mountain area of central Virginia, she uses loose and suggestive strokes that imply an immediacy of experience within which she wants the viewer to linger. Painting for her is a process of paying attention, of looking at the layers of meaning we ascribe to our placed-ness in contemporary agrarian contexts and hopefully offering moments of re-humanizing connections. Christen is a member of Capital Artist Collective.
