“CHRISTINA PETTERSSON wants you under her spell. A Wonderland pulses from her enchanted hand, and as you stand dwarfed before her towering pieces you are overrun by the contradictions of her natural world, the clash of sensual fantasy with corporeal decay. Stone lions weep black blood. Murderous kudzu climbs heavenward. Neglected columns stand as the grand ghosts of an incinerated mansion. As you’re drawn ever deeper into the tangled symphony of her deft pencil strokes, you are drenched in Gothic whimsy and beguiled by the gentle monster of an imagination overgrown with carnival and myth. Pettersson is bewitched by the songs of forgotten ghosts, by the incomprehensible decadence of her beloved South. How could you resist her mayhem?” – Susanna Sonnenberg
