Kriss De Jong
multimedia artist working in art and technology.
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
the photographic pigment prints on canvas or watercolor paper
mounted on handbuilt panels.
Kriss De Jong is a multimedia artist who moves smoothly between
the worlds of visual art, audio, video and performance. De Jong
has shown work and performed Internationally.
