On the Edge by Christine Scott

Exhibition and Shows

6 Sep 2019 to 27 Oct 2019

Christine Scott’s work explores states of order/disorder, harmony/chaos and identity relating to environment. She works with paper which she cuts or carves to create images. Cutting paper produces a positive and negative vision of that which is taken and that which is left. Often it is the skeletal features and the unseen structure that is exposed. Through these positive and negative images and the layering of forms and symbolic shapes, she aims to encourage questions about the meanings and references encased in the works.

The eucalyptus leaves and flowers denote the land of Australia. These trees cover all of our land, and grow in many forms and places in wild and beautiful ways. In Scott’s work, the branches are confined, shaped and ordered by the human hand to form a beautiful but fragile ornament. She uses colour to enhance the meaning and layering of her works. Using colour creates new positives and new negatives while also referencing the colours of land, sea and states of movement within. Exploring these diverse states of living within and being surrounded by nature is a consistent theme in Scott’s work.
