We are thrilled artist Krista Allison will bring her work with fiber and found objects to the June 18th Market!
Krista grew up in New Jersey learning all kinds of crafts and art and thrifty habits from her mom. Once farmland, bordering her property she spent her childhood roaming freely, finding animal bones, fruit trees and berry bushes, secret forts, and abandoned rusty field tools. She took two things from this time: a love for solitude in nature, and an appreciation of things time-worn and decayed.
Krista describes her "textile pieces as connected to the observable, external world and the randomness in it; while the paintings reflect an inner wilderness. The persona and the psyche, maybe. As I move forward and develop my various streams of consciousness, I hope to mix and meld them so that the internal and external can be expressed simultaneously. That's the goal: bringing all the parts together into unity."
