She has found hidden gems to commemorate through paintings and prints in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Marin county.
Kris's influences include Pierre Bonnard, Mark Rothko, Ross Bleckner, Mark Grieve, and Silvia Poloto.
KRIS RICHARDSON BREWER
I grew up in the mountains of Southern California.
I’ve created and exhibited paintings, prints and sculptural work in LA, NY and SF for the past 25 years.
My father was an artist, architect and designer. My brother and I were exposed to fine art and architecture from extensive traveling to far-flung places.
My grandmother was also an artist, during a time that discouraged such pursuits for women. She hid away to create art.
I wish I had seen it or known her as an artist.
From my grandmother and my father I’ve caught the irresistible urge to create beauty,
to form order from chaos, to dream big, to become disciplined and determined and courageous.
To create art is a radical act.
It doesn’t make any sense and it’s the only thing that’s ever made any sense to me.
