‘Christina says of her work ‘The main focus of my work is on the subject of shape and the impression that it leaves on us. Our world is formed by shape; geometric, organic and abstract. In this collection of work I bring into play the use of geometric shapes against the organic background of nature. I believe that the juxtaposition of the colourful, simple geometric shapes work well with the free flowing lines of the landscapes. These two elements combined together, leave an impression that we are all connected by shape which form our reality.’

Photographs were taken in the Glen of Aherlow. These were printed on fabric and paper, with a combination of both stencil and drawing.
