Kristin Gibson graduated from ECU School of Art in 1990 with a BFA in Painting and Textiles. Kristin’s background in designing fabric collections can clearly be seen her paintings with her strong sense of color, composition, and especially texture. After a lifetime living and painting by the sea, a recent move and life change finds her contemplating a new canvas, with walks in Duke Gardens, Umstead State Park, and the Durham Farmer’s Market.
An alla prima painter, Kristin’s confident brushwork and unique perspectives in her still life subjects capture the eye of collectors. "Kristin's work has organic unity and a cohesive palette that yields many delights in a narrow range of colors. Her painting also does not give up all its secrets in the first look, it makes you wonder, also makes you think, ‘wonder why I never saw such beauty in a simple arrangement of objects before?'"
"Finding perpetual inspiration in organic shapes and hues of fruits, flowers, vegetables, and the sea, my works begin as drawings with my paintbrush. With bold immediacy and working entirely from day-to-day subjects, lines in a layer of paint jumpstart a fluent process of color into color, paint into paint. Favorite aspects of a painting emerge as spontaneous composition and expressive brushwork that sings. These thick impasto marks offer hints and glimpses into my process. Truth is, I paint the way I cook - not afraid to mix a little of this with a little of that. Mixing form and flavors, mixing colors, open to the unexpected and what intuitively the subject and process brings forth. I learn something new each day."
