ABOUT

Christa Capua

I love the forgotten corners, the secret gardens, the ephemera, the attics.  The drawers in an old desk, the shoebox full of letters.  My current work is digital collage printed on canvas. The subject matter explores themes of memory, time, sacred geometry, the life cycle and the collective unconscious.  My work is inspired by religious artifacts of various kinds, and artists such as  Joseph Cornell, Robert Rauschenberg, Renee Stout, and Swoon.


I have been a psychotherapist for 15 years. My work as a therapist and my work as an artist are intertwined in that both explore the subconscious, the meaning and symbolism we attribute to the events in our lives, and the process of suffering/death and redemption/rebirth that are common experiences for us all.
