"Kristen Stephen is an abstract painter, who responds intuitively to her artistic materials, to create works that represents what she finds beautiful. In her series Glitter Magpie, she begins by dyeing her canvas with India ink, stretching it, then painting it with India ink, acrylic colours, and glitter, fixed with gel. “I find glitter seductive, and magpies are attracted to glitter,” she explains. “The black backdrop provides a harshness which organizes the colours and keeps them from floating off.” Painting for Kristen is an obsession, spontaneously arising from her subconscious. “I want to encapsulate viewers, and to transport them to a place of ease, through colour planes of glitter and softness.”
