About this title


Full color exhibition of the most current 25 pieces. Numerous international art critics expound at length on Peirano's career and her work, and each commentary is presented in English and German.

A generation of post-modernists has attempted to pronounce the personal irrelevant or even non-existent. Christine Peirano stands in opposition to contemporary trends toward impersonal cynicism and banality. Her work stands for meaning, truth, and self-affirmation. Peirano's work is so deeply personal that it transcends individual identity and points toward the absolute. These new works have at their genesis an intense life-long struggle for personal and cultural identity, which took the form of painting relatively late in the artist's life. In Peirano's most recent paintings we witness the fruition of that search for truth - what she calls "my truth" - the truth of her own being. These most recent works reflect the full integration of gender, culture, spirit, and history, creating unique expressions of universal truth.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
