Christina Lucia Giuffrida is an Australian artist, now based New York City. Ideas on nostalgia, nationhood and queer storytelling lie at the heart of her practice, that spans sculpture, painting and ceramics. Through these mediums, intimate fantasias of love, hope and fear play themselves out against the backdrop of ‘The Great Outdoors’.
Giuffrida earned her BVA in Sculpture from the University of Sydney and an MFA from the New York Academy of Art. She is the recipient of the ‘Art Start’ grant from the Australian Federal Government and the ‘Emerging Artist’ grant from the Ian Potter Foundation. Recently she has completed residencies in Italy, USA and the Dominican Republic. Her work has also been featured in Frontrunner Magazine, New American Paintings and the Harvard publication ‘Peripheries: A Journal of Word and Image’ (Fall 2020). Selected exhibitions include Space Gallery (USA), The Art Vacancy (USA), The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (USA), Sotheby’s (USA), ABC Stone (USA), M. Contemporary (AUS), Articulate Gallery (AUS), Verge Gallery (AUS) and Home Gallery (AUS). Her work is held in private collections in both the United States and Australia.
