The story behind the artwork
Taking influence from the works of the iconic Surrealist painter, Salvador Dali, Kristjana has created an other-world of wonder, transmogrifying familiar creatures to create this remarkable tableau. Flowers have human-esque faces, birds have evolved with hands and the mountain goat is so at one with its environment that it becomes the mountain. Dali's elephants pass by against a cerulean sky and melting clocks dance in the foreground. The archway invites the viewer to sit and view the extraordinary; a lone fish contemplates the portal into outer space; a tiger converses with a lizard, a fork plunges into an orange half to create a waterfall. Things are seldom what they seem in this fantastical scene.
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.
Edition of 75, signed and numbered by the artist.
