Christine Sciulli


Artist Statement
Light can be voluminously fierce, subtly ethereal, and deftly determined. Its ability to envelop us humans is primal, transcending language and culture. From my earliest memories catching light has been my main preoccupation. Held in this state of suspension we have to carry on. Forced through the lens of the mundane we can find the profound.

Christine Sciulli is a visual artist whose primary medium is projected light.

Her projection installations have been shown in the US and abroad including the American Academy of Arts and Letters 2014 Invitational Exhibition, Guild Hall Museum, Shirley Fiterman Art Center, Parrish Art Museum, Islip Art Museum, South Fork Museum of Natural History, Edward Hopper House Art Center, and Cologne’s MAKK (part of 2018 Collumina Light Festival), as well as in International light and music festivals (Responsive/Halifax Canada and Evi Lichtungen/Hildesheim Germany). In 2019, Sciulli mounted SUBSUME at the Herron Art Gallery; Phosphene Dreams at Guild Hall Museum; and was commissioned by Dalhousie Art Gallery and NSCAD to create the site-specific large scale work Breath of the Sea with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. Sciulli’s solo show ROIL was shown at Brooklyn’s Smack Mellon Gallery in early 2016 and was awarded a Lighting Award (UK) and Lumen Citation from the Illuminating Engineering Society.  She was the recipient of a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Grant for her public art project Intercepting Planes X and commissioned by the Global Poverty Project to create her installation, Expanding Circles, projected from above onto 2,500 people, for the 2013 Global Citizen Festival. She holds an MFA/BFA from Hunter College and Bachelor  of Architectural Engineering from Penn State University.
