In this painting, artist Kristen Brown paints an ethereal translucent shape of a pregnant woman standing at a window. "Overlapping nature imagery merges with the figure, evoking a sense of growth," says Kristen. "Plant matter and tree branches fill in the silhouette and in places come to resemble facial features, veins, and stretching, obscuring the boundary between the images."

Artist Kristen Brown sheds light on the fragility of memories with her dreamlike portraits. Kristen uses her knowledge of photography to create motion blur, distortion and multiple exposures in her oil paintings, overlapping figures, landscapes and cityscapes. The models in her paintings are referenced from people close to her, and the locations are significant places from various time periods throughout her life. "I will often use multiple places or time periods in a painting to illustrate the idea of being taken back into a past moment from a current one, or the idea of the past and present feeling as though they are happening simultaneously," she explains. In the rare cases when she is not painting, you can find her printmaking, dabbling in ceramics, traveling, playing guitar or meditating. Kristen graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan in Canada and a Master of Fine Arts from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.
