The Art of Christine Relton and Tom Marine
Tom Marine and Christine Relton are two contemporary British artists whose use of colour and imagination take the viewer into a time and space of the imagination. What is particularly unique from their effort is the fact that they work on the majority of their canvases together. This dual collaboration brings both a fusion and synergy to the paintings.
Drawn to the intensity of light, one is immediately reminded of the visual fluency and language of Matisse. Inspired by travel to Greece, India, and Asia, their work glows with much intensity. The nature of their work starts with a concept or event, which has made an impact on their personal lives. The images work with and on the viewer.
Their work has received much acclaim in the British art press, and it is not hard to understand why.
