Kristina Veasey likes to explore a range of processes in her work, from digital to the more traditional.
The work is usually led by the theme of the work and solutions sought in finding the best way of conveying the points Kristina wants to make or the questions she wants to ask. 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, the format also allows the capturing of honest, naked moments.
Kristina deeply feels the need to take a breath from the faster pace of modern technology and ground herself in more traditional, organic processes. From the physicality of moulding and forming, building and shaping or making paper, upholstering furniture, constructing Withy sculptures, painting or land art.
“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
