Christine Harris

New Zealand visual artist Christine Harris works swiftly and intensely with the ancient art of marbling to create bespoke, evocative paintings.

Harris is a leading hand-painted ceramics designer who is currently exploring the serendipitous fluidity of playing with paint on water.

“I work quickly and intensely with a point to capture the movement of the paints, using the natural movement of the water,” Harris says.

Garden walls, herbaceous borders, ponds and estuaries are her inspiration; the alchemy of paint on water releases the impressionist, often biomorphic paintings evocative of gardens and marine plants.

“The alchemy of marbling plays a big part in my work – it’s always a surprise when the paper is lifted off the water – some days the colours won’t be the same, or I get wonderful biomorphic designs happening”
