Christine Wilkinson’s work blurs the boundaries between photography and painting. Light becomes form. Form without substance, existing only as an instance of colour and light.
It begins with a photograph or a fragment of a photograph - car headlights maybe or sunlight streaming through a window. It’s a starting point, a process, reducing the image simply to random pixels to be used as raw material. Then it’s about finding the subject matter through the process, evoking a sensation rather than pinning down an image.
Christine quotes Vaughan Oliver "One thing leads to another, and during the process you’ll stumble upon something that just happens, and that in a way gives you the feeling of what you were looking for in the beginning."
Based in central London and with a background in video and filmmaking Christine Wilkinson experiments with film and digital cameras, scanners, photocopiers, digital darkroom software ... and occasionally a pencil ... to create form out of light.
Working with photographic negatives and digital pixels she creates something in between photography and painting with highly colourful results. We are thrilled to be showing Christine Wilkinson’s work as a new collection of Artist Proofs, printing on both paper and wood. More editions and one-offs will be in the pipeline later in the 2020.
