Christine Sefolosha penetrates the ambivalence of the animal realm: « They bring us back to a state of innocence, to nature in the wild and to instinct as well. They are symbols of my private visions, of my states of consciousness. »

“The ultimate, final meaning that we can give to Christine Sefolosha’s work is that it expresses the feeling of a being in metamorphosis measuring
everything he loses in becoming human.” — Martine Lusardy

“Christine Sefolosha’s work evokes myth, metaphor, and ancient stories, casting her as griot of her own timeless tribe. She paints shadows and spirits. In her animal imagery – fluid paintings made with mud, tar, pigment, ink, and chalk – what emerges is not a creature but its essence; not a visage, but power.“ — Leslie Umberger, Art historian

“The main characteristique of this work is the energy, the intensity and impetus invested in and through her work.” — Charles-Arthur Boyer, Art Critic

« Birds and animals are majestic beings to be respected, revered and emulated. With a sensitivity most often found in members of tribal societies, Sefolosha gives us the essence of her expressionistic creatures — their soul — revealing an uncanny affinity with authentic animal nature. … Moved by the startling beauty of these primal images, and by the rush of feelings and associations that fill us, we know instinctively and wholeheartedly that we are in the presence of a master artist, seer and storyteller. » — Annie Carlano, Raw Vision.

« Gazing upon her works, one feels not as if there is a strict line dividing man and beast, but rather a spectrum as liquid as her filmy artworks. » — Priscilla Frank, The Huffington Post
