Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Featured Artist: Kina Crow - Sculpture & 3D Mixed Media

"Looking for jury"

Kina Crow utilizes her 25 years of experience in theater to infuse her sculptures with a distinct sense of character. Years spent as a costume designer helping actors create their own characters has given her a wealth of knowledge concerning story, fantasy, relationships, and narration.

Each piece tells a story of its own, arising from Crow's instinct to create and nurture the different characters peopling her imagination. 

 

Gazing at the figures you know that you know them. They speak directly to you with their seemingly unsophisticated wisdom.

 

Artist's statement:

My interest in human behavior, and a desire to keep a watchful eye on my own wandering mind is both the inspiration for my work itself and the pursuit of an artistic life. The work explores the strange and and often funny territory of the mind, with my 5 year old self as the navigator and asks the viewer to come out and play. 

 

These works are untraditional portraits. Not of people, but of thoughts and the states of mind that create the wonderful part of being human that feels like magic. My most curious self tends to seek out the places that most 

often scare and confuse me because I have learned over the years that an idea or inspiration always holds some clue that is slowly leading me towards the clarity I so desperately seek.

Each piece is hand built utilizing coil, pinch and slab construction methods. I may also employ glazes that I make myself in the studio. This work is a narrative of my view of human behavior and the constant challenge of living with a wandering mind. 

 

Meet Kina in Fort Worth at MAIN St., April 11-14.
