Kristin's current series of works on canvas and paper, applies unconventional painting techniques to defined spaces. Her work is rooted in a love painting and an exploration of the medium. Using forced air, heat, water, and gestures to capture motion and the effects of transformation on painted surfaces, her works focus on contrasts, exploring ideas like deliberate/unintended and controlled/uncontrolled.
Kristin was inspired to investigate varying applications of paint when she viewed aerial photos depicting Japanese landscapes before and after that country's devastating tsunami. The effects of the torrential water on highly defined and developed landscapes prompted Kristin to consider the use of force and water on painted surfaces. From this initial inspiration, Kristin created the series involving surface and pattern abstractions of both large and infinitesimal spaces
