Exhibition Statement: Kristin Swenson-Lintault
My process has been varied but I have always been inspired to create work that deals with extracting the essence of some aspect of nature with an emphasis on abstraction, color, surface and layering. This encaustic piece titled “Root” has a direct connection to my studio location in the Pacific Northwest where moss grows prolifically and I am heavily influenced by plant color and texture.
“Root” is part of an ongoing series titled “Inside Out” examining origins, connections and lifelines. I use my interest in fiber/textiles and natural forms to build a range of imagery derived from trees, bonsai, roots, labyrinths, veins, umbilical cords, plant cells, knots, skeins, and sacred ropes to suggest strength, vitality, continuum, nourishment, and ancestral links.
