About Kristy Lee!

Transition can be difficult, but for artist Kristy Lee, she beautifully glides through metamorphosis while she creates. Challenging herself every day to grow in her art. Strongly Experimenting with social media to help push her inspiration and creativity. It can take a lot to be able to push yourself, but as Kristy lee says:

“This takes pushing myself to take risks as a part of my art making process. In this phase of my life, my practice in the studio allows me the freedom to leave a bit of my past self behind which was a nurturer as a mother.  Now with children grown and on their own, I can nurture my newer self as a full-time artist. “

Reflection Of Mind

Transitions were difficult for Kristy, but she finds in that her workflows throughout her struggles naturally. This is a part of her internal mind narrative that consistently fluctuates as she redefines herself. The artwork Kristy makes is a transformation of who she is at the time of that time. Reflection of her mind as it goes through the negative and positive aspects of life and the feeling she feels going through this mysterious world.

“Being an artist and a mother is not a rigid identity, but rather is an intricate intersection of both.” explains Kristy

These juxtapositions are a perpetual element Kristy Lee’s artwork. She explores the balance between objectivity and subjectivity, control and chaos, realism and abstraction, individualism, and archetypes. Inspired by the abstract expressionists, Kristy translates a particular state of emotion on canvas through subconscious creation.

The intention behind these beautiful large-scale works of art is to fill your vision and imagination without any peripheral blinders on. Momentarily removing actual reality from the viewer to a state of mind that overcomes you with emotion and colors.

Kristy’s Approach

Her approach to art is an approach to life. Life is constantly full of transitions, contradictions, experiments, disruptions, and conversations to encourage scrutiny of one’s environment, cultural standards of beauty, and natural creativity.

Inspired by Jenny Saville who said, “I do hope I play out the contradictions that I feel, all the anxieties and dilemmas. If they’re there in the work, then that’s brilliant.”
