1st of November 2018
SYDNEY – SOLO EXHIBITION at Wedge Gallery, Kinokuniya
Lv 2, The Galeries, 500 George St, Sydney NSW 2000

Featuring large-scale immersive portraits, ‘His Eyes Looketh’ is the result of Kristine’s ongoing research into the human face as a mysterious site of transcendence.

“I want to create portraits with a solidity that cannot easily be dismissed and ‘swiped’ away… In a frenetic world driven by… deadlines and online notifications, these portraits call the viewer to stop and behold the face of the Other.. begging the onlooker: ‘Look at me. I am here. I am waiting.’”

The exhibition runs from Nov 15 – 26
Open Monday to Sunday 10 am – 7 pm

A massive thank you to the staff and students of KGV for welcoming me this past week. It was such a highlight for my trip here in Hong Kong. KGV definitely has one of the most impressive Visual Arts High-School Department I’ve seen, including five studio classrooms, five full-time talented and dedicated art teachers, a technical officer, fully equipped printmaking and ceramic facilities (even an etching press!). Great staff with super talented students! I still can’t believe the students were writing and researching about me as an artist ❤

As a recipient of the New Colombo Scholarship, I was able to undertake a three-week study trip through Hong Kong, Beijing and Shenzhen to immerse myself in the culture of Greater China. Travelling with a group of artists, fashion designers, textile makers and software engineers, I had the opportunity to collaborate in the making of wearable technology, exhibited at the Woolmark building in Hong Kong, and will be presented during Sydney Design Festival in 2018.

“The portrait freezes violence and tragedy, but it is the eyes that rivet attention… By focusing on the face and by enlarging it into a scale so big, it almost gives the audience a reason to stop and look…”
