The Calm and The Frenzy: Krista Harris

Our life seems, as I’m sure many of yours do, like a stream of times of hurry and peace.  When we’re looking for our next spot– hurry.  Once we get there and settle in– peace.  Autumn and spring– hurry.  Winter and summer– peace.  In her abstract paintings, Colorado artist Krista Harris finds inspiration in that natural push and pull that the journey of life brings.

Through her process of building up and tearing down, adding and subtracting paint intuitively, Harris ends up with compositions that are flooded with movement, yet we find moments of respite among the fury.  Warm colors are tempered with contrasting cool hues, a perfect parallel of our own seasons of peace among life’s fray.
