The work of Kristjana S Williams is inspired by traditional crafts of fine art: with a distinctly Victoriana style and an aesthetic which recalls Chinese silk painting, Williams depicts vivid scenes and figures from the natural world using contemporary collage and print techniques. Her work explores the use of vibrant colour, clashing different shades and tones for a resultant harmony which is at once compelling and beautiful. In ‘Lear Gaukur 03’ Williams makes use of a monochrome palette in order to emphasise the bursts of colour that she applies in collage form. The bird that takes centre stage, as well as the botanical detail which surrounds it, has been etched in black and white for a distinctly Victorian feel. Each butterfly that adorns the page - as well as the signature butterfly wing obscuring the face of the bird - has been injected with intense orange and red to a startling, contrast effect. The result is not only beautiful but unique and distinguished, a masterful blending of the old with the new. This print is signed and numbered by the artist.
