Christina Mitrentse

Dalla Rosa Gallery in London presented Welcome to the Multiverse, a solo exhibition of new works by Onassis scholar Christina Mitrentse. The exhibition, which opened February 8, included drawings, collages, small sculptures and limited edition prints - revolve around the idea of multiverse, defined as an infinite realm of being or potential being of which the universe is regarded as a part.

Since 1999 Mitrentse has been developing the Multiverse series by accumulating a variety of images with the aim of mapping infinite parallel worlds and their interaction with the (perceived) real world, following in the footsteps of conceptual artist John Latham among other references.Her work polarise into two groups defined by scale. On one hand are large scale highly detailed landscapes that she builds up with layers of graphite, pastel and pencil, emphasizing the complexity of the phenomenal world as if seen in a panoramic aerial photograph.

On the other hand are her small scale works where she combines the research into the multiverse with the way a book can influence a person's life. For example the Science Books drawings (2012-13) are inspired by scientific publications written by popular modern thinkers such as Brian Cox, Stephen Hawking, Roger Penrose, that present complex subjects to a broad audience. There is a distinct shift towards abstraction in the series of drawings and collages Wounded Super-Selene (I – IV, 2012-13), which depict round graphite forms resembling natural satellites, their surfaces populated by book-like forms.

Christina Mitrentse studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design, and at the University of Greenwich. She has exhibited extensively in galleries, museums and public spaces including Liverpool Biennial, XV Biennale de Mediterranean Thessaloniki-Rome, ICA (London), NDSM-werf Amsterdam, Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Departure Foundation (London), Royal Academy, and The Centre of book Arts, NY.
