Artist Kristina Oliver Showcases Abstract Art
Writer / Demi Lawrence
Local artist Kristina Oliver will be showcasing her 13 latest pieces of abstract, mixed media artwork at the Noblesville Visitors Center all throughout the month of July. Kristina is a juried member of the Hamilton County Artists’ Association (HCAA) and recently placed second at the HCAA Recognition Exhibit. All of her artwork will be available for purchase with free entry to the exhibit.
“My process of creating an abstract comes from having an open mind to materials, color, technique and composition. I’m inspired by the world of color, and which colors I use is often determined by my mood and the technique I want to use,” Kristina said. “I’m all about the process. The outcome is always a surprise to me.”
Twenty percent of the sales made at this showcase will be given to the Alzheimer’s Association and Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s. Having lost both of her parents in the past year to theses diseases, Kristina wishes to pay tribute to her mother’s love for art and her father’s never-ending support for her career in the art industry.
“These last few years have been stressful and full of grief, but creating art is a form of mediation for me and is helping me to heal from this profound loss,” explained Kristina. “I still create art at my kitchen table and now wear my dad’s apron. While painting, I can feel both my mum and dad’s spirits close by and know I’m still not alone in this pursuit.”
