Kristine Kainer creates luscious still lifes with the goal that the viewer will look at food with a little more reverence. "We sail through our daily lives and often cannot remember what we ate for dinner the previous night," says Kristine. "With my art, I hope that the next meal or snack will hold a little more interest." Her close-up fried eggs elevate the simple and delicious dish to a place of luxurious glory.
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."
