Though I live in Texas, I consider Virginia my home and long for the shellfish I would get from the Chesapeake Bay. Since I can no longer eat oysters there, I have them shipped to me here. This trio of oyster shells is from one of those feasts.
For Kristine Kainer, recreating her emotional attachments to subject matter, whether a still-life or landscape, is paramount. Her goal is to emotionally trigger a response in the viewer. But, "this response does not need to replicate my own feelings; instead, I hope to make the viewer pause for a moment, reflect upon, then respond to my work in a personal, meaningful way."
