James C. Christensen - The Tie That Binds -  LIMITED EDITION PRINT DIPTYCH Published by the Greenwich Workshop

“The best friendships can and will endure,” explains James Christensen. “My wife has a life-long friend that lives in California. We live in Utah. Their relationship is more like that of sisters, although possibly even stronger. They have been friends for decades. Over that period of time they have had the chance to share all the joys life has presented them. They have also looked to and supported each other through hardship, distance and change. Separately, they have grown but never have they grown apart. The physical distance between them is overcome by an unseen connection.

“This painting is a diptych, each panel its own character. Unlike my diptych 'Sisters,' both of these women are equals in their relationship as indicated by the similar style of clothing between the two. Both women lightly grasp the tie that binds them together. It is not a difficult thing to manage. Additionally, each has an ample length of cord in reserve, ensuring that no physical distance between them can severe their tie.”

As with James Christensen’s original diptych, both Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Editions of "The Tie That Binds" are presented in two panels. One of artist’s ideas in creating the work was that each of the sister panels could reside in a separate residence, serving as a beautiful and thoughtful reminder of the relationship that makes this painting complete.

James C. Christensen
James C. Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University as well as the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the United States and Europe. Opulent, colorful, Shakespearean, extraordinary: All words that aptly portray Christensen’s most popular artworks that have also been described as “creations from the land a little left of reality.” He has created a Shakespearean Island, an entire undersea world and a village of Mother Goose characters. But when he isn’t giving life to other’s worlds, he paints a place of his own. The result is a unique kinetic kingdom where recognizable human emotions are often manifested as fish or fowl, utilizing the viewer’s own imagination as no other artist can. His art includes unique people, places and things that exist somewhere between adult dreams and childhood memories. “I don’t think of myself as a fantasy artist,” said Christensen. “I certainly have an affinity for myths, fables and ancient lore, but I also find time to create landscapes and other subjects which include commissions. Recent projects, for example, include a mural commission for a conference center in Nauvoo, Illinois, a poster for the 2001 Utah Shakespearean Festival and a sculpture for Nu-Skin. “What’s truly important to me is that my art is introspective and in turn challenges the mind’s eye of those who view it regardless of the subject matter.” The artist has been commissioned by both Time/Life Books and Omni to create illustrations for their publications and his work has appeared in the prestigious American Illustration Annual and Japan’s Outstanding American Illustrators. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen’s fine art appears as works of art in porcelain and brass from The Greenwich Workshop Collection; artist-inspired products such as note cards, silk ties and books are also available. His first book, A Journey of the Imagination: The Art of James Christensen, was published to great acclaim in 1994. His second, the adventure fantasy Voyage of the Basset, has more than 75,000 copies in print. His subsequent book include the inventive Rhymes & Reasons, published in May 1997, Parables (written by Robert Millet, 1999), The Personal Illumination Series and The Personal Illumination Journal (2000), a series of interactive journals, A Shakespeare Sketchbook (2001) and James Christensen, Foremost Fantasy Artist (2001). Christensen was recently designated as a “Utah Art Treasure,” one of Utah’s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor’s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen’s artwork to Utah’s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine’s Hall of Fame. Jim and his wife, Carole, co-chair the Mormon Arts Foundation.
