Christina Rodes is an Appalachian eco-artist from the wild, wonderful state of West Virginia. Rodes graduated with a BFA in Visual Arts: Photography from Marshall University (MU) in 2017 shortly after being awarded membership to the Professional Photographers of West Virginia (PPWV) organization, a network of professional photographers from all over the state of WV. During her time at Marshall, Rodes received a research grant from the university for her project proposal titled, "Ending Endless Waste," as well as was heavily involved with both galleries on Marshall's campus. After attending university, Rodes continued to remain very active with the local artists in her community, working with the local park district and coordinating events that promoted and accelerated artist activity in her hometown and surrounding areas. Rodes is now based in Austin, Texas and is ready to take on her next creative endeavor.
Rodes' photographic work has been featured in international publication including Photographer's Forum Annual Best of College and High School Photography as well as local digital and print . Much of Rodes' painting/collage works are often seen across the Appalachian region in galleries, universities, retail spaces and law offices. Not limited to a single medium, Rodes' 2D+ works are inspired by the culture within her home state/community where resources are limited and recycling practices are devastatingly not the norm. She uses recycled and found materials in her works in hopes to help viewers try to understand the extremity of the impact humans have on our planet which we all share.
