Tina Selby graduated from the University of the West of England in 2014 with a first class honours degree in Drawing and Applied Arts. During her studies she specialised in paper cutting through the use of a laser cutter. Predominantly she works with with paper and card but Tina is also interested in working with fabrics, plastics and wood. She is interested in transforming an ordinary material into an extraordinary object.
Specialising in the digital manipulation of line, her work engages with the geographical aesthetics of human life and nature, using technological and industrial applications to create innovative three dimensional compositions which encourage the viewer to take a closer look.
Tina’s practice is a process of design and experimentation, exploring her passion with pattern and texture. Collating aerial photographs and images taken from satellites in space, Tina catalogues a huge resource of intricate lines and patterns. She works from these to create 2 dimensional drawings which then transform into complex 3 dimensional compositions, highlighting the complexity and intricacy of our beautiful planet.
