PARALLAX ART FAIR Miami / December 7-9, 2012
Soho Studios, Miami, FL
Kristen Morrison lives in the mountains in Adamstown, Maryland. After years of creative writing and observation of the natural world, she began painting in 1992. At first she painted on her own but soon began studying English and Studio Art. Morrison says:
“At times I can almost hear or taste the colors or paint textures. Presently, I am working with concepts. These concepts connect me to my work as an idea connects one to the craft of poetry.”
Investigation is a key theme in her work. She paints with oil, acrylic and water media and is also exploring installation, altered books, box assemblage and mixed media. Morrison’s work will be exhibited in Maryland, New York City and Arizona in 2012-2013. For more, please visit www.kristenmorrison.com.
