Christina Rothe

My name is Christina Rothe. I am a multi-media artist, born in Hamburg, Germany and raised from infancy in Lagos, Nigeria where my life’s journey has been imprinted in deep and profound ways. I now call the United States home and live in Washington State.

Ever since I was a child, I found art to be my way of responding to the world. Words do not come easy; I prefer to communicate my innermost thoughts with colors, shapes and textures. Through my art I seek to express life’s journey, our interconnection to all that is in all of its fullness, whether it be hidden or emerging, buried or exposed.

I am primarily known to layer individual threads of various weights and colors one thread at a time onto surfaces. My technique of working with threads evolved over many years inspired by the African artist FAB – Adebisi Fabunmi. As my body of work evolves I find immense joy integrating and exploring differing materials and techniques into my thread work. I love this process of listening to and honoring each material’s voice. I follow my curiosity finding new ways of voicing my thoughts and creative ideas.  

I believe, together we weave life’s complex tapestry by building community through the voices of our hearts through the arts. My work seeks to invoke the OneHeartMind:

OneWorld, OneHeart, ManyHeartSongs.

With Gratitude,

Christina

To touch hearts and have people realize how beautiful and life giving each heartbeat is.

That no one heartbeat or heart is the same, we are all unique sentient beings.

How being different is beautiful and to take a moment to feel, sense, hear your own heartbeat and recognize we all have one, finding heart to reach out to one another and summon courage to stop hate and fear.

Breathe and allow silence for reflection, for listening and for hearing one another. Only together we manifest the needed change for a more just, inclusive and compassionate human experience.

"I believe, together we weave life's complex tapestry by building community through the voices of our hearts through the arts."
