Using colour as a language to create abstract colour combinations, artist Christine O'Reilly Wilson attempts to evoke a glimpse of past experience. Her use of translucent paint allows colour to build in intensity while also allowing the previous mark-making to be seen. Christine adds; 'I will pour, splash and imprint colour onto the surface, which can be scraped, scoured, sponged, wiped away or applied in thick opaque areas to cover over the previous painting. Colour intensity develops within the translucent layers. Over several layers, the colour intensity develops and allows me to become absorbed within the light-filled space'.
Christine has been painting and exhibiting her work for several years, and has been part of group exhibitions and solo shows, locally, nationally and internationally throughout that time.
