Lives in Vancouver, BC

Artist Statement

Kari Kristensen’s work embraces disparate lines of Canadian and international art history, responding to both through new forms. Printmaking, in spite of sustained practice across geography and cultures, has a quiet platform in contemporary Western art. She seeks to reimagine the Canadian Landscape tradition and its persistence in her and our consciousness, most notably in her current series Imagined Landscape which includes both intricately cut linoleum prints as well as monoserigraphs. Harnessing lino printing’s even ink application, combined with the choice of a clean monochrome aesthetic, Kristensen fully embraces the limitations of the medium itself, only to defy them.
