About the Artist
Krystal is an undergraduate in the 3D Media program working specifically with metals. In her free time she likes thrifting, antiquing, and DIY projects. This is somewhat apparent in her art work. Her work is also inspired by her drawing and the painting background. She likes to draw something then pull pieces from it and include those in her artwork. She also likes to focus on movement and linear forms.Ever since her jewelry making class in high school she has really enjoyed working metals.
All of Krystal’s work is made from just metal. This exhibit was cool because it was made up by a bunch of different artists. It was really cool to see how so many artists could come together and looked so cohesive. Krystal was directly responsible for the salt and pepper shakers. There weren’t any typical salt and pepper shakers, they were much more modern and sleek.
The curves of the salt and pepper shakers had smooth edges with a C shaped curve. Everything was just a continuous line.You can see how Krystal enjoys DIY, thrifting, and antiquing in her artwork. Everything seems very spontaneous and as if she just played it be ear.
Something that really stuck with me from this exhibit was the drive all the artists had. They were all so motivated to do well in the artwork and all had alternative careers ready and available that still related to their passions somehow. Krystal wants to go into industrial design if her artwork doesn’t pan out. Then this way she is still working with metal. I really liked the variety of artists and I also really liked how the pieces were almost all every day objects but in a new light.
