Christina Waterson

Christina Waterson is an artist, designer, and maker that employs a rich palette of materials to realize intricate three-dimensional surfaces and forms that extend our spatial perception and enrich public spaces. Waterson finds beauty in repetition. Her weavings, foldings and curving arabesques transport the viewer deep into the spatial and rhythmic qualities of her work; an aesthetic state of bliss that involves being lost in their delicate complexity.

Waterson’s innovative approach has been recognized nationally and internationally through commissions, extensive media coverage, interviews and grants including a highly coveted Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Traveling Fellowship to research the origins of patterns and their relationship to art, design and architecture. Waterson’s public artworks are site-specific and respond to the scale and natural history of their locale. The materiality and form of Waterson’s surfaces subtly reflect changes in light and shadow, and beautifully frame their surrounding environment.

‘My work reconfigures a person’s perception of spatial depth and place. I am listening and sensing all the time to tune into the material, the space around it and the individual. In turn the layered surfaces, structures and three dimensional patterns I create make for an evolving experience revealing the delicate complexity and depth of space.’
