Artby13 is a visual exploratory project by Denver artist, Krista Lea.
Each piece reflects a dynamic human artist with a mental, physical, and emotional perspective located in non-static space time. Despite our undeniable individuality, we are one. There is no target audience or specific style. Artby13 is the endeavor of an artist drawn to illustration, word play, and both free ranging substrates and mediums. The artist is primarily working in acrylic paint concentrated on small scale canvas, metal, recycled trash, and wood panels. Krista finds delight in play/experimentation, and ongoing studies of her favorite visual artists.
These works exist between tragedy and humor, truth and fiction, boundaries and full absorption, insecurity and self-validation, love and hatred; all driven by non-censored free thinking.
Krista uses her art to allow empty space within to practice control in a chaotic reality. A blend of intentional and subconscious desires is released in a therapeutic display of concepts, emotions, and statements imperative to the heart and soul. Each piece pays tribute to evolution with a basis in the mathematical concept of infinity. So to say, none of this is calculated. It just is.
