Christina McPhee’s images move from within a matrix of abstraction, shadowing figures and contingent effects. Her dynamic, performative, physical engagement with materials, in both her analogue and digital works, is a seduction into surface-skidding calligraphic gestures and mark-making. Her photography, involved with imaging crushed and pinned drawings, has a strong forensic atmosphere, and calls into question perception, and the creative act itself. 


Museum collections include: Whitney Museum of American Art, Rhizome Arbase at the New Museum, International Center for Photography, New York; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; Williamson Gallery at Scripps College, Claremont, California; and Thresholds New Media Collection, Scotland. Solo museum exhibitions include American University Museum-Katzen Arts Center, Washington DC; and Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sweden. Biennial and museum group exhibitions include:  Documenta 12, Bucharest Biennial 3, Museum of Modern Art Medellin, Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, California Museum of Photography, and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London.
