“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
Inspired by the world’s myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen’s work adds up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes “curious” looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he thought of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates -- be it a porcelain, fine art print or book -- he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen’s philosophy that “Believing is Seeing.” Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, 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 U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been 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 and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole were co- chairs on the Mormon Arts Foundation. He was a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator’s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care.
