KRISTINE LEE - GET YOUR ART OUT THERE MEMBER OF THE DAY

UPRISING by Kristine Lee
KRISTINE LEE



TRAPPED by Kristine Lee
Kristine Lee has wanted to be an artist since she first put pencil to paper. She is a self taught artist living in beautiful Penticton BC. Building her own frames and stretching her own canvas Kristine produces a textured look by layering plaster and primer to her canvas before painting and sanding. Then adding more layers of acrylic paint to add depth and age to her paintings. Her paintings present themselves to her as the layers of deep bright colors and plaster develop into an image. She is influenced by the environment/nature, social/polictical issues and the human form as well as her own pain and bliss. Kristine has been involved in several local art shows including the "2013 Erotic Art Show" at Sparkling Hills Resort in Vernon BC as well as a personal show in Osoyoos and one in Vancouver.

These paintings come into being through the process of layering, destruction and rebuilding. There have been three important paths in my life. First the birth of my children. Second, understanding my connection with the planet and every being on it. Third, finding and embracing my independance. 

With little conscious direction the painting process is a type of visually stimulating experiment. Ultimately my intent is to create paintings that invite multiple interpretations and repeated examination.
