Christine is an installation artist whose work involves poetry, sculpture and video. Her primary intention is to engage the audience personally. Since graduating from Sculpture and Environmental Art, Glasgow School of Art, 2009, she has been making artwork and coordinating exhibitions. Christine’s participation artworks engage the audience in a personal narrative. My practice unites art mediums to create a narrative and sensory experience. Inspired by Lygia Clark, Susan Hiller and Ceal Floyer, the work has a feminine and intimate aesthetic.
Currently, Christine is developing a new body of work about coping with life on the edge, being in a delusional relationship, the potential for an epileptic fit, and the different feeling these each give to time and space. Core terror in each moment, feeling blissful and tense, appreciating each moment but experiencing a constant state of tension; these experiences can cause us to use space and time differently. She also creates drawings and photographs which capture the ephemeral, intimate and fragile.
Christine has coordinated exhibitions that support local and emerging artists. Recently, she has been working with Croydon Community Against Trafficking (CCAT) to raise awareness of Anti-Slavery Day. CCAT are working towards an exhibition plus coinciding events for October 2016 and are seeking artists who would like to be involved.
Christine McLoughlin (b. Newcastle), graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in 2009, coordinated exhibitions at The Here Gallery, Bristol (2010-2011), and is now living and working in Croydon.
