04.17.14 Review of “Body Language” exhibition in Albany Times-Union

“Beyond Anatomy: Arworks Examine Meaning of the Body” by Amy Griffin, Albany Times-Union, April 17, 2014

From article:

Christie’s  characters are more otherworldly than dreamy. In what looks like a future inhabited only by females or female-like creatures, technology and bodies are becoming one. In “We Have Never Not Been Inhuman,” her drawings are rendered in vinyl for a site-specific installation on the windows over the security area. The plastic medium is a good fit for Christie’s pliant figures, and the site is interesting, too. As passengers are herded into their pat-downs and X-ray machines, they can gaze up on these women floating among futuristic machinery.”
