Christine Stevens

Resident Artist
WORKSHOP C3

www.christinestevens.co.uk

Taking as a starting point traditional labour-intensive production processes involving repetitive movements of hand and body, Christine Stevens explores haptic and gestural residues in contemporary culture.  Her work often builds on connections between craft practices and contemporary Fine Art. Typically, Stevens uses sculptural installations and moving image in her investigations of materiality and embodiment.  She has developed a particular interest in clay as a contemporary Fine Art medium.

As both, artist and Gestalt psychotherapist, Stevens experiments with cross-disciplinary activities which focus on the experiential and the participative. This involves facilitating groups experimenting with making as a means of self-recognising, inter-relating and responding.

Christine is interested in the interdisciplinary dialogue between visual arts and mental health.
She works in various media including video, clay, drawing and print. As an artist, she is interested in making as a process which engages us with the material world and makes us more aware of ourselves in the process.

Christine is in charge of the Clay Studio at Primary. The Clay Studio runs regular workshops and drop-in sessions throughout the year.
