Cristina Rivera Lucioni

I am a full-time Melbourne artist who was mentored by the late Australian artist, Mr. Dudley Drew over many years.

My preferred mediums are oil paints and pastels. Oils allow me to push and pull the paint to its limits, and the multi-layering aspect of the creative process, that leads the painting to take the form intended, is intensely satisfying. This flexibility provides endless learning possibilities. Pastel medium is less forgiving but beautiful just the same. 

I am fascinated by the delicate dance of light and shade that can be choreographed by colour and tone. Through this journey, I continue to seek inspiration from subjects that evoke emotion and art that pokes my memory. Storytelling is an integral part of my work.

My early fascination with the works of the masters of Romanticism, John Constable, and Karl Friedrich, coupled with my admiration for realism, have led me to a contemporary romantic style.

Naturally, there are many artists past and present and of various Disciplines from whom I draw ongoing inspiration, artists such as; El Greco, Velazquez, Dudley Drew, Margaret Ollie, Arthur Streeton, Margaret Preston, Sidney Nolan, Carlos Catasse, Camilo Mori, Marie Bracquemond, Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, Ariane Beigneux and an array of others, well known or not.

I am a member of the Victorian Artists Society. I have exhibited work in various art shows and my artwork is represented in various private collections.

Formal Education

·       Bachelor of Nursing

·       Postgraduate in Education

·       Postgraduate in Gerontology

·        Master of Nursing Research

My formal education is part of a 20-year career in clinical, health management, and tertiary education where I encountered incredible experiences with people at their most vulnerable stages in their human journey. As a new full-time artist, I now draw upon those experiences in my creative endeavor to be a successful visual storyteller.
