Kristina is a visual artist and performer and is drawn to creative projects that will combine both of these passions. She has exhibited her sculpture in venues around the Midwest and Twin Cities and was a recipient of a Jerome Fiber Art Project Grant for 2010-2011 at the Minnesota Textile Center.
She has in the past performed with such theatre companies as The Winding Sheet Outfit, Red Eye Theater, and Sandbox Theatre. Her current work incorporates light and sound through projected animation and explores how it interacts with her sculptures.
" The influence, inspiration and ideas behind my current work is influenced by my fascination and love of the night sky, specifically images seen through the Hubble Telescope. Images of the Milky Way and star clusters give an impression of movement through time, especially in the way their light arcs across the night sky and fades to morning. The contradiction between static imagery and movement becomes central to my compositions. By using sheer fabric and paper, I explore how light and shadow becomes part of that movement. The fabric creates an organic, somewhat simple abstraction of the original image or theme, while the bent wire relays a tension that cannot be duplicated on canvas. This work explores the scope of textures, colors, shapes and compositions in the vast expanse of the night sky. "
