Kristin Fritz

Beauty & Chaos
Paper grocery bags, pure pigment and walnut ink
48" x 36" 2009

Kristin Fritz paints with papers by combining collage and painting techniques to create works about balance, relationship, and choice. In her current work, paper grocery bags are stained and distressed then applied onto canvas to create ˇ°tapestriesˇ± of personal history and perspective. Making something from nothing, Fritz seeks to present the familiar in an unfamiliar way. She draws inspiration from Eastern philosophy, quantum physics, and the ever-changing landscape of light and dark within.
Fritz was born in Mountain View, California, and now resides in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and three boys.
