Kristjana S Williams is known for her artful blend of intricate Victoriana meets colourful modernity. Her work plays with botanical exoticism, incorporating petals, plumage and butterfly wings into her bold prints. Williams explores the layering of bright primary colours over monochrome etchings in detailed images which sit somewhere between nineteenth century illustration and twentieth-century pop art prints. The beauty of her work lies in its ability to harmonise clashing colours against busy backgrounds, creating images of startling depth and beauty. ‘Astrikur Blai’ details a tropical scene, foregrounding a richly plumed ostrich surrounded by a mass of brightly coloured flora and fauna. The splashy colours sit beautifully against the print’s intricately sketched monochrome background, displaying WiIliams’ masterful ability to meld contemporary printing styles and techniques with exquisite Victorian art and design. This print is signed and numbered by the artist.
