“Connected” An exhibition of paintings by Christine Allison

Christine Allison’s powerful, figurative oil paintings portray the connectedness of human beings. Through the use of bold and vibrant colours she describes the moods and emotions created by the relationships between the paintings’ subjects, reflected not only in their faces but also between and around the spaces they inhabit. By her choice of colours, Allison also explores the intuitive emotional symbolism human beings attribute to colour. Tension, harmony, affection, anger or serenity are all mirrored in Allison’s intense hues of the colour spectrum.

Allison says of her work: ‘To be a human being is the experience we know. To be connected in that experience to other human beings extends our knowing. I am connected, you are connected; we are connected. I feel, you feel; we feel. Sometimes humans touch physically, other times it is the space between them that touches and holds the most feeling. As in what is said and what is unsaid, it can be the silence that shouts the loudest. Words connect into sentences; human beings connect into relationships.’
