Christine Wagner, Artist & Owner of Pennedbyhand Studio "No Visible Wounds" Altered Book
Artist Christine Wagner creates beautiful sculptural pieces by altering books chosen specifically for their title and content. "If I am missing or Dead" and "No Visible Wounds" are two of the books that resonated with her personal experience and recovery from a violent relationship.

TUALATIN, Ore. - April 2, 2019 - PrZen -- Christine Wagner, artist and owner at Pennedbyhand Studio was recently published in the premier issue of Blacklisted Copenhagen, a Denmark based art publisher. Christine's collection of altered books titled "My not so Ordinary Life" includes pieces that have been altered to create beautiful sculptures that are a response to her traumatic relationship with an abusive partner. She was beaten, strangled, intimidated by threats of violence directed at both her and her family as well as emotional and verbal abuse during and after leaving the relationship.

"I created this body of work to start a conversation about domestic violence and bring awareness to the challenges faced by victims when trying to leave the relationship as well as the long term issues faced by victims and those who witness the violence against them" said Christine, " Through found books I created sculptures evocative of the female form using techniques that include burning, cutting, calligraphic writing and beeswax to create beauty to draw the viewer into a subject that isn't beautiful at all."

Blacklisted Copenhagen was started in 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Jeffery Scott Stratton and is a platform for artists about artists. The first issue was published in January 2019.
