The work of fine artist Kristjana S Williams is about layering the old with the new. Her images reference traditional art and illustration, bringing them up to date with contemporary printing techniques. With a passion for nature and an eye for colour, Williams creates landscapes and vistas of unrivalled beauty with a unique aesthetic. ‘Columbian Jungle’ creates a dream-like landscape using monochrome etchings to achieve an impressive sense of depth, overlaid with a menagerie of brightly coloured plants, fruit, birds, beasts and butterflies. With the intensity of traditional Chinese silk painting, ‘Columbian Jungle’ is compelling in its use of rich colour and intricate detail, masterfully blending nineteenth century illustrative style with twenty-first century collage aesthetics.
