Kristine’s work explores the relationship between environment and aloneness with use of light, shadow and placement of figures. She uses the contrast of hard edges and pattern against natural elements such as sky, light, trees and clouds to mirror the relationship of human figures to inorganic structures such as buildings, overpasses, and streets. The figures feel out of place in light of this contrast, creating a feeling of unbelonging. Her works of natural scenes, often depict the opposite where trees are enveloping the figure with a feeling of welcome and mercy. Her oil paintings on canvas showcase layers of vibrant color in a dreamy compound of contemporary realism and impressionism.
