November 1, 2007 - First Thursday Opening:
The Tricycle invites you to join the artist, Kriss De Jong, for the San Francisco premier showing of The Unendowed. The gallery will be open & the artist in attendance from 5.30-9.30pm

The Unendowed exposes the minor demons, specters, & stranded spirits found among the gravestones. It catches these creatures, who cannot or will not move on, cavorting in their corporeal body’s final resting place.

Kriss De Jong creates abstract figures that defy categorization. These figures flow from pen to paper, transforming to sculptural beings set in sepulchral surrounding.

Working to reveal a new urban mythology, she photographically captures the stones and crypts, mostly of the forgotten, unendowed areas of the cemetery. The figures are painted in acrylic over photographic pigment prints mounted on handbuilt panels.

De Jong is a multimedia artist who moves smoothly between the worlds of visual art, audio, video and performance. She has shown work and performed Internationally.
