I really like the kind of scientific edge that permeates most of the works in Kristin’s portfolio. Through colour, composition, materials, and titling, the artist creates an overall aesthetic that makes me think of the work of Amarie Bergman or even in some cases Ryoji Ikeda. Though Kristin’s works allow for more uncertainty, more blurring of the edges, many pieces still express a mathematical sense of precision.

Though one can find conceptual threads that stay consistent throughout Kristin’s portfolio, the artist’s works still show off a wide range of different styles and media, lending to the overall sense of experimentation. Whether she’s working in printmaking, wood sculpture, or mixed media installation, the artist seems to find a way to express her ideas.
