The first exhibition of 2017 in The Small Gallery, ARI is by Edinburgh based artists, Christine Wylie.
Christine Wylie’s art practice demonstrates systematic ways of working with mediums that explore line, form and space. In printmaking, installation and photography, Christine uses light and shade to produce works based on geometric constructs.
More recently focusing on printmaking, Christine folds white paper into geometric shapes, which are photographed on a white background under bright sunlight to cast shadows in some areas and reduce form in others. The image is then processed into a solar plate etching (photogravure), which gives the final etching a subtlety and softness.
Christine graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 and now lives and works in Edinburgh and Auckland, New Zealand.
