"My current work examines, documents, comments, and reacts to the current shifting realities facing all living beings as we all negotiate through the Anthropocene era and other external influences. My work is rooted in hope and survival and reveals deep truth."
Tina Alberni’s bi-cultural heritage and upbringing weave throughout the fabric of her art. She brings layers together in a variety of techniques and materials to build her framework, and geometry, color, and symbolism fuse to complete a narrative often rooted in the themes of hope and survival.
Much like her years in printmaking, her process is intentional and rational, but her creative journey flows through intuition. The constant push and pull between instinct and logic, provides endless discoveries and fun surprises, which eventually culminate into final, unanticipated creations.
Alberni is a full-time artist and has been practicing arts for the past three decades. She earned a BS in Art Education with a concentration in Printmaking.
Since the mid-90s’, she has been a graphic designer, an art educator, an art department Chair, a business and gallery owner, she has served on boards and jury panels, and has been the featured artist in many venues. Also, over the years she has been the recipient of multiple grants and awards and has exhibited and sold to collectors on several continents. Most recently, she received an artist support grant made possible through the support of the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, the Blumenthal Endowment, and The Arts & Science Council. She also received, for the second time, a 150K value award by ArtPop Charlotte featuring her work on billboards and digital media throughout the region, and was just featured for a second time on the front cover of a prestigious University Literary Magazine.
Over the years, her art and public works have been published and covered in various print and online media outlets, and she has an online presence. Alberni is open to commissions and alternative exhibition opportunities.
