Kristina Veasey likes to explore a range of processes in her work, from digital to more traditional craft.
Kristina is led by concept: the issues she wants to address, the provocations and narratives she is engaged with, and the perspectives she explores. The format the work takes, whether it be film, installation, or sculpture, and the materials used, are usually chosen because they add layers to the work and are the best way to convey the artist’s concepts whilst engaging her audiences.
Her digital images, animation, sound and film are easily accessible and are quick to share. Kristina enjoys having the ability to manipulate and control; to create illusion and drama and yet at the same time, also allow the capturing of honest, naked moments.
Kristina often feels the need to take a breath from the faster pace of modern technology and ground herself in more traditional, organic processes. She enjoys exploring new materials and techniques, and the physicality of moulding and forming.
“I find huge satisfaction in being able to use materials that are malleable and processes that are sensorial. It can be a whole-body experience for me and often the process itself is as important as the final piece.”Kristina Veasey, visual artist
