A striking collection of digital abstract art designs, by artist Christine Wilkinson. Based in central London, and with a background in graphic design and film-making, Christine uses photography to create inspired digital abstract art designs."It begins with a photograph or a fragment of a photograph. It could be anything but it needs to give a feel of what the finished piece might be about.It's a starting point, it's about play. I'll play with the image, these days usually in Photoshop. I don't have a finished idea…..it's a process, one thing leads to another, and during the process you'll stumble upon something, you'll have something that just happens, that you weren't expecting, and that in a sense gives you the feeling of what you were looking for in the beginning. It's something that you just found, unearthed."
A range of designs printed onto a canvas and stretched over a chunky box frame.
Following a career as a camerawoman which spanned shooting music videos for MTV to documentary filming in Burma, Christine has developed a unique photographic style evocative of 60s psychedelia with a contemporary edge. She trained at London College of Printing (Foundation in Graphic Design); North East London Polytechnic (BA Hons Communication Design) and Middlesex University (Postgraduate Diploma in Film and Television). Her work has been exhibited in the UK, USA and China and is also in collections in Belgium, the Netherlands and Indonesia.
Christine Wilkinson comments "The best way to describe my process is that I start with an image of light on which I make marks. Each of these marks enables me to control shape, tone, contrast and luminosity, almost like a form of drawing, creating exciting possibilities. I become completely absorbed in this exploration. One thing leads to another, and during the process I reach a point where I encounter something unexpected that gives me the feeling I was searching for from the start. I know then that the image is complete."
