Cristina Hajosy/Hajosy Arts
Location: Eliot School
Cristina Hajosy is an artist, art educator and designer based in Greater Boston. She is the owner of Hajosy Arts, a mixed media studio of photography, printmaking, book arts, and historical decorative arts, especially paper marbling and paste paper. Her work strives to foster understanding and personal growth through art education and the creation of beautiful and challenging art. Her passion for marbling began with paper, specifically to be used in the context of bookbinding. It swiftly moved to fabrics, textiles, wood and even terra-cotta. She finds marbled patterns can be conceptualized into mixed media contexts in unique ways. Often feminist, body related, and occasionally narrative, her marbled artworks take this traditional craft into a contemporary, often turbulent place.
