Christine Wylie’s art practice demonstrates systematic ways of working with mediums that explore line, form and space.
In printmaking, installation and photography, the artist uses light and shade to produce works based on geometric constructs. The compositional potential of lines and planes and the apparent absence of colour, combine to create images that suggest presence and absence, space and non-space. It is work that can be characterized as being reductive and highly formal.
Wylie’s recent series of prints, Slant, is part of a body of work that was comissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers for their 50th Anniversary in 2017, and is part of a series of 5 images.
The artist graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Painting, and an MFA (Distinction) in Art Space and Nature. She has participated in residencies from Slovenia to Chicago, initiated a collective artwork publication and works extensively with academic institutions and artists’ societies. She is a professional member of The Royal Scottish Academy, The Society of Scottish Artists and Visual Art Scotland. She is reprented by several galleries throughout the UK, America and New Zealand
Wylie has exhibited both in the UK and internationally, most recently at The Royal Scottish Academy’s Annual Exhibition and the Broadway Arts Festival (both online, unfortunately), and is currently showing in Edinburgh Printmakers permanent collection.
Note: I only have the image itself scanned which measures approx 19cm x 19cm. The actual size of the work is 39cm high x 34cm wide.
