The sculpture reflects the spaces between protection and vulnerability and questions how we carry our experiences. This dynamic process of acknowledging the layers of traumas and events reflects regeneration as it is a testament to the mutability of being that is our humanity. Aesthetically the space is a reference to the phenomenon of whale falls. This occurs when a whale carcass falls to the ocean floor and as a result creates a thriving ecosystem. It is estimated that the whale’s remains equate to 2000 years of marine snow.
Krystle is currently studying for a Masters in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, London and has recently been shortlisted for the 2021 edition of New Contemporaries. She works via multiple process often without a clear resolution in mind and relationships therefore form an anchor around which she navigates. In her use of geometry, colour and texture, she attempts to locate a space between opposing ideas to create a sense of uncertainty, the answering of a question with yet another. Krystle is interested in language as a medium in its most abstract and literal sense expressing concepts of emotional, spatial and temporal infiltration and connectivity as well as the impact of technology on our humanity.
