Headwind - Sailor sculpture
Sculptures are mixed media using natural materials, as well as recycled hardened fabrics and wire.
The sculpture technique begins with a wire armature wrapped in foil. Recycled fabrics that have been soaked in a hardening medium are then wrapped around the armature. The hardening medium dries slowly, allowing Kris time to manipulate the fabric and figure into the desired shape.
Once the figure is dry, this process is applied again, this time applying hair, clothing and detail. When the piece is completely dry she then applies layers of paint and her signature metallics with finishing coats of varnish.
