Color

Christine Atkinson

2015 - 2019

My work is rooted in materiality. I explore objects and processes that are the result of energy, often in the form of light and color, translated through material. They exist in stasis, paused between what they were and what they will become. These objects describe not only themselves but the actants responsible for their current state. The materials that I use are often charged, playing with the tension between their natural state and the state created through a form of intervention.

I work with the objects whose color is intrinsic to the material and the implied color of photography. Thus creating a dialogue between color as absorbed energy and color as reflected light. I am interested in where colors touch, where they combine and where they cancel each other into neutrality. This change in energy questions were color exists; in the object, in the light, or in the observer. These objects become embodiments of the instability of the relationship between measurable reality and perception.
