Christine Olson is a time-based artist residing in Madison, WI. She stopped by The Blast Factory to witness my process and watch the creation of a Stick Vega.
As we developed the piece, Renee and I learned about Christine and her art. Recently Christine has toured and performed with Non Grata as a participant in the Diverse Universe Nomadic Performance Art tour in Finland and Estonia. She performs and trains in Chicago and New York City. Her interests are Butoh, Deco and the surreal. See her work here Christine Olson.
As we prepared to light the fuse our discussion centered on the challenges and the opportunities of a performance artist in Madison.
Christine lit the fuse!
Clean the debris.
Christine liked the work and bought the piece.
Renee and I really enjoyed meeting Christine and are impressed with her dedication and work. She is pretty cool. And I hope we can do a group event in the future.
Christine noted, "Just wanted to say thanks! So great to meet the both of you and see the great things that you are doing in Madison and thanks for being so open and sharing."
Renee and I feel the same way! Seek out her work.
