102814rehobothFramework: Artworks by Kristin Texeira, November 7th

Kristin Texeira paints to remember. She states “I translate the essence of moments through color by mixing up the poetics of people and places. I retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching and writing. This process preserves memories as tangible “maps.” I often juxtapose these memory maps with short captions that form the foundation for the colors I mix.” Her abstract paintings tell us stories through her memories of colors rather than a direct perception of them.
