About the Artist
Kristi is an interesting person and takes pride in her work. She loves to burn and set things on fire. She is also a fan of the Walking Dead. She should be done with her degree by next semester and hopes to work with something metal related. Kristi does have trouble naming her pieces of work tho. Each piece she works on usually takes 3 weeks to complete. She likes jewelry and a fan of metal sculpts.
Her work was interesting in the way that it was sometimes small and probably could’ve been used as accessories. The shapes varied across the board but there weren’t pieces that stood out as jagged or unnatural in the sense that this objects can be tied or related to something that can be found in a store.
There weren’t any particular messages she wanted to convey in her work but Kristi did seem to get her inspiration from her grandfather on how he use to do repair televisions. She rarely wears her own pieces.
Synthesis / My Experience
To me, i found her many pieces of work(about 100) really intriguing and there were many ‘appliances’ or household looking items that i can see fitting into my home. Her work pleased me not only because of the attention of detail that was given to it but the presentation of it gave it this special flow.
