The Oval Heimskort - Original is a very colourful and stunning piece of art. The piece is worked on top of an old infographic shipping route map by an unknown german cartographer. The bright blue was what originally drew Kristjana to this old map. It was achieved by printing on stone, where as the more delicate outline colour was coloured by hand. When Kristjana sees a map of the world she fills up with excitement and feels privileged to be able to use them in her artwork.
This is the first Oval Three dimensional piece Kristjana has been commissioned to design. As for most of the private commissioned pieces they mostly focus on things in the past, that is a family's history as well as family members characteristics and interests. This piece is different in the sense that it was commissioned by a young individual looking into ambitions and dreams for the future.
Framed dimensions of Original Oval piece: 150 cm x 90 cm x 13 cm
Hand and laser cut paper collage. Digitally designed, hand sculpted paper elements are pinned in place to create a stunning three dimensional effect.
Kristjana's Original pieces come in a deep plain box frame or a bespoke hand routed circular frames, which can be painted in any colour the client wishes. Kristjana uses perspex glass for the framing of her original work, due to the lightness of the material and durability.
