Christa Capua uses collage, image transfers, and photo manipulation to explore themes of gender, sacred geometry, the life cycle and the collective unconscious. She is inspired by religious iconography of various faiths, as well as by a range of artists from Robert Rauschenberg and Joseph Cornell to Swoon, Renee Stout, and Ryan McGinness. Her work examines 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.
