Christy Kruse & Heinz Grossrieder (Sept 11 – Oct 22)

Flow103Christy Kruse

Christy Kruse is an artist originally from Seattle, WA. She always loved drawing and taking pictures from a young age. She studied fine arts at the University of South Australia, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and the University of Washington where she completed the Scientific Illustration Program. Her photography has been published in Black & White Magazine. Christy has displayed her work at the Burke Museum in Seattle, WA. and received a second place award on the DP Challenge. She currently resides just outside of Seattle with her husband, toddler son and newborn baby girl.


Christy talks about her art:
My art shimmers gold specks of light that peak through photographic images like joy seeping through endless sorrow. In learning to process the loss of my father and then my son, the identical twin of my surviving son, I capture breadths of light and focus in on the individual beauty of an image which allows gold to shine through. With each piece, gold leaf is applied like paint on paper requiring several days to cure. When the final piece is revealed the imperfections recall my personal experience with love and loss. It is my hope that each person who views my work will find peace as I have while creating them.

Heinz Grossrieder

My work is mostly abstract, and also indirectly about change and recycling.  My flow, slash, and swirl painting series are all latex on canvas and I use recycled latex house paint as it is a green material and I like the idea that I can recycle something into another thing. My chandelier series is similar in that I often start by using an old chandelier as a base and then change it and develop it into something totally different and unique. My messages series continues this theme of recycling, change and changing one thing into another as I cut out words, phrases and quotes from magazines and other printed matter and then assemble them into a collage to create something totally different and unique.

Heinz talks about his art:
I like the idea that there are multiple ways of seeing things and that people can have a positive emotional reaction to the work. I enjoy it when people look at my work and tell me what they see in it. I also like the idea that I can change something from one thing to another; I can recycle something and make it beautiful and valuable in a new way.
