Paschke is an internationally accomplished artist and calligrapher. Her fascination with both Eastern and Western letterforms and art has been a lifelong study. For decades her art has been inspired by traditional Chinese masters and Japanese Sumi-e painting, crossed with the edgy abstract expressionism of Kline, Pollock, Rothko, Gottlieb, Motherwell and Jasper Johns—thus redefining both mediums into her own contemporary style. Her art is abstractly interpretive as she uses assorted mediums including gesso, resist, watercolor, gouache, text, encaustic, collaged paper and accents of gold leaf to achieve her images. Whether in a minimalist space or a vibrant gallery, Chris Paschke’s work adds depth, intrigue, and a touch of artistic alchemy to any environment.
