Painting and Mixed Media
SYMBIOSIS is close and often l ong-term interaction between two or more different species.

Chri sta Toole's work explores the subjects of biology\, science\, energy and tr ansformation. Using paint\, thread\, wax and other materials\, her work tra nsforms these materials into a fluid image. This body of work highlights th e nature of shared existence\, its complexities and harmonies. "SYMBIOSIS" explores the relationship between objects or forms and what they share betw een them. Her work utilizes forms that speak to each other with shapes that connect across canvases. The images are reflective of biological forms tha t at once refer to the microscopic and can also represent the macro levels of space. The work simultaneously highlights those similarities and undersc ores the persistent yet intricate laws of the universe and nature. Energy i s a constant in all levels and is shared across entities. Energy moves from one realm into another or one body or form to another\; its properties may change but the force remains constant.
