What are we doing to Mother Earth? What are we doing to each other? Humans have forced straight angled structures into Nature’s amorphous yet harmonious forms through construction and excavation, thereby continually shifting its balance. The surface of our planet has ancient visual scars as memory and modern shiny implants that decorate it in order to fulfill our exponential needs. But at what cost? By intertwining tactile surfaces impressed with absent structure and/or added implants, Christy Symington explores these macro and micro fractal bindings.
Through time indigenous peoples have been invaded, oppressed and even today fundamental survival needs for many are lacking for the benefit of others; history has been warped but is gradually being refreshed to repair its truth. Christy’s figurative work tells some of the stories of those omitted. Inviduals who have played substantial roles and are still little recognised for their achievements and are often people of colour.
Christy Symington studied in Paris and at the New York Studio School, returning to London to do her MA at Byam Shaw. She is an Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and has exhibited in the UK, Paris and New York.
