KRISTA HARRIS (b. 1954, Roanoke, Virginia)Lives in Southwest Colorado EDUCATION East Carolina University, BFA Painting, 1978 A career level artist whose gestural, abstract paintings are richly layered with mark and medium, sharing a love of both drawing and painting. She thinks of her work as maps or environments, exploring the imperfect, fleeting changes between the natural and the man-made worlds we navigate on a daily basis. There is nothing frugal about her paintings; instead they are richly layered, sensually manipulated surfaces which seem to live and breathe. Concealing as much as they reveal, and weaving together gestural, energetic marks and fields of color, the opposing forces lure you in...inviting you to linger over painterly passages, to get lost between the lines, and just for a moment, to suspend thought in favor of feeling. Her art work is widely collected and in many private collections both nationally and internationally. She exhibits in prestigious galleries across the country and is included in corporate collections such as the Duke Memorial Cancer Center, Durham NC; Northern Trust Bank, Chicago, IL; and the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Grand Cayman Island. She has also participated in international art fairs including SOFA NYC, Chicago and Santa Fe as well as Palm Beach International Art Fair.
