Christina Ondrus is an artist whose work wanders a liminal space where science, philosophy and mysticism seek to understand perception, phenomena and our place in the universe. She received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and was a 2010 artist fellow with the Terra Foundation for American Art. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions throughout Los Angeles, including shows at JOAN, AWHRHWAR, Monte Vista Projects, Machine Project, Artist Curated Projects, Public Fiction, and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, among others. Her projects have been featured in The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Artforum, Art 21 Blog, Artbound, Frieze, Hyperallergic, New American Paintings, and X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly. Christina is also the founding director of KNOWLEDGES, a curatorial initiative that has produced two site-specific exhibitions at Mount Wilson Observatory. First in 2012, then again in 2017, KNOWLEDGES at Mount Wilson Observatory presented a constellation of cosmic oriented contemporary artwork and performances on the grounds of the historic astronomical observatory located in the San Gabriel Mountains, outside Los Angeles. The 2017 exhibition was made possible with the support of a grant from the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts.
