Description

Renaissance Rome looking at Architecture engravings, working with the Royal Stairway this entrance is multiplied to create an exaggerated sense of depth, its inspired by the time Kristjana spent at the V&A creating an exhibition in the British galleries. Kristjana passion here is working with depth and using the plates collected John Barrington which have an exceptional depth and clarity working with them creating dept and colour is a feast for the mind. The elements include the all knowing Paul Smith famous Zebra and English curiosities and industry like the fox coming for tea and the rabbit coming with the teacups as well as the industry that is the core of PS the sewing machines.

 

Limited Edition of 75 signed by the artist.

 

Kristjana captures the traditional method of dioramas by adapting her trademark collage technique; designing and giclée printing the individual elements, before intricately hand and laser cutting them and slotting the pieces into a bespoke frame and layering to create the sense of reality and depth. The result is a stunning three dimensional paper theatre graphic art piece.

Due to the construction of the dioramas, all dioramas come in specialist frames. The top layer of the artwork is placed between two sheets of non-reflective glass.

The Artist Bio

 

KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS

Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins, and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of 'Beyond the Valley', a position she held for eight years.  In 2011 she began creating fine art pieces as well as illustrating books and designing interior items.  Her designs are inspired by nature, and her technique involves digitally and physically layering nature upon nature to mirror the symmetry that exists in all living things.  Each piece is its own magical universe of exotic botanicals and vibrant animals.

Described by the New York Times as part of the ‘new antiquarian movement’, Kristjana’s three dimensional original work, Limited Edition prints and interior products feature Victorian engravings, which the artist has blended with verdant and exotic flora and fauna to stunning effect.  Animals and insects are intertwined with lavish foliage, layered over ancient shipping maps and antique photographs.  Fantastical new creatures are born, and what Kristjana calls ‘wishful forests’.  These alluringly immersive two and three dimensional tableaus have won Kristjana many international awards including the Pentawards, D&D in book, a Clio Award and first prize in the New York Festivals Grand Prix.

Kristjana’s unique aesthetic, which is both mythical and modern, has led to collaborations with heritage brands such as Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Browns Hotel and Penhaligon's as well as the iconic contemporary marques such as Paul Smith, Victoria & Albert Museum and London’s Shard.

Kristjana lives and works in West London.
