Christina Taylor-Smith


Christina's work combines line and colour to evoke aspects and rhythms found both in nature and man-made structures. The richness and depth of colour combined with the beautiful embossing gives the work an interesting surface. The focus is on the essence of things with an awareness of the fragile and transient quality of a moment in time. The lines are interconnecting, easily broken, lost and found. The built-up of consecutive lines acquire a density and rhythm which can be fragile, flowing or appear like the layers in strata. In her most recent work, Christina has started to incorporate metal leaf to emphasise the preciousness of nature in its jewel- like quality. This adds yet another dimension in the way light plays and is reflected on the surface of the work.

Christina graduated from the Surrey Institute in Fine Art and worked as head of Printmaking and Artist in Residence at the South Hill Park Arts Centre for six years. As well as running the department she participated in many art projects as artist in the community and collaborated with other artists across disciplines leading to several exhibitions and performances at the centre (group and solo).After leaving S.H.P, she joined the Oxford Printmakers Co-op and exhibits regularly with the group in the Oxford area and nationally. She won the best 2D award at the Newbury Arts Festival which resulted in a solo exhibition.
