Kristine Andrea: Darkness & Light, Simplicity and Grace

April 15 - 25, 2021

The Simplicity Collection was born when Kristine began constructing minimalistic line drawings in 2017. She creates each figure using a black watercolour pencil, and then lightly washes the pencil markings to blend on 140 lb cold press cotton paper.

The Grace Collection is a series of figurative oil paintings. Kristine selected three tones for this collection that combine both feminine and masculine qualities. Each piece begins as one of three tones as the background. The figure is then brought to life with layers by soft brush strokes.  Kristine draws on the beauty of human form, the emotional connection and the movement of the human figure. The way people move mesmerizes her and she endeavours to create untold stories through her artwork. 

The Darkess & Light series, Kristine’s newest work in abstraction, was started to clear her mind and create pieces with either spectrum of just white or just black. The collection has expanded, and her latest abstract pieces use layered colours to express darkness and light.
