About Cristina Biaggi Ph.D.:
is foremost an artist and has exhibited throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. She has also achieved international recognition for her varied and significant contributions to the field of Goddess centered art and scholarship. Her works are a reflection and an extension of her lifelong interest in the classics, art and art history, archaeology, literature and languages acquired at Vassar, The University of Utah, Harvard and New York University as well as from her extensive travel throughout the world.
When she isn’t preparing new pieces for an exhibition, Dr. Biaggi is writing and lecturing. As a 5th degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, she continues practicing and teaching it. She is also a black sash in Kung Fu. In talking about her creative process, Dr. Biaggi says, “As an artist, I enjoy transitioning from realistic work to abstract work. Creating my bronzes requires my total immersion in contemplating and rendering the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of my subjects—a process where I must concentrate on capturing the minute details of a face and the soul beyond it.”
About Activism Into Art: A Personal History of Feminist Art:
This is an unforgettable book, by an unforgettable person. Cristina has constantly lived life to the fullest. Whether its apartheid, archaeology, human history before writing, nuclear perils, politics, religion, terrorism, tsunamis, women’s lives, or something else, she has always involved herself in big issues. All of those involvements have informed her art. Hence this book is actually three books rolled into one: passionate autobiography, a vivid portrait of our times, and an artist revealing the sources of her inspiration.
