Kristina 
— RISMONDO

 

During 2019, Kristina started experimenting with fabric, printmaking, drawing and sewing. The new series of soft objects so called Totems may evoke primitive cultures. Motives belong to the Mediterranean cultural circle, author’s imagination, Art History or myth, with references on antiquity and Italian Renaissance. Considering Fiber Art, her artworks are placed somewhere between printmaking, drawing and sewing.  Sewing by hand or sewing machine may evoke drawing through its irregularity and printmaking through its expression.

 

Durante il 2019, Kristina ha iniziato a sperimentare con il tessuto, la stampa, il disegno e il cucito. La nuova serie di oggetti morbidi, i cosiddetti Totem, potrebbe evocare culture primitive. I motivi appartengono al circolo culturale mediterraneo, all’immaginazione dell’autore, alla storia dell’arte o al mito, con riferimenti all’antichità e al Rinascimento italiano. Considerando la Fiber Art, le sue opere si collocano a metà tra la stampa, il disegno e il cucito. Cucire a mano o a macchina da cucire può evocare il disegno attraverso la sua irregolarità e l’incisione attraverso la sua espressione
