Artwork

An abstract depiction of the essence of morning light shining through the window of a living room, in which stands an ambiguous, almost invisible figure. The blurry nature of the painting and the figure's ambiguity refer to the idea that memory is not always a coherent or continuous record of something that has happened. Every individual has different versions of past experiences, and moments can often become blurred or distant.

Kristen Brown

San Francisco, California

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.
