White Grid 17
"The invisible painting layer is the shadow cast by light reflecting off the depth and accumulation of paint. This is often more apparent in the white grid paintings but the coloured grids also have a directional quality and optical play between the colored impasto lines which have a similar intent."
Christou’s dimensional paintings are constructed by repetitive weaving of colour to create optical play and intricacy. She builds her abstract compositions with layers of acrylic paint or oil pastel, forming surfaces with incredible depth and texture.
