Painting in the gilded light of her Umbrian studio, Christine Webb toys with the stability of her tables: tilting their cloths and letting their thin legs slope. As a figurative still life painter, Christine Webb evokes the floral silhouettes of Margaret Preston in her vibrant interiors. Dissecting her work into slithers of light and shade, Webb’s still lifes conceive an almost contemporary chiaroscuro technique. Studying at Sydney College of the Arts, Webb then moved on to act as Art Director, Publisher and Editor of the contemporary monthly Stiletto Magazine from 1981 to 1989. Now a full-time artist, Webb currently divides her time between Sydney, Australia and her home in Umbria, Italy. She exhibits regularly in solo and group exhibitions in Australia and abroad, and teaches One Day Workshops in Colour Theory.
