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
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.
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.
