Christina Salata of Youngstown, Ohio is a young artist exploring concepts surrounding the idea of beauty and the nature of femininity. Undertones of vulnerability are displayed in her works with the use of transparent material and layered paint. Found objects such as plastic bags, metal hardware, and pressed flowers are used to convey a balance between the masculine and feminine, or to emphasize hyper-femininity in some cases. Christina is a student at Youngstown State University currently studying Interdisciplinary Art with hopes to graduate Fall of 2018.
