"These paintings are based on dreams I had while living on a houseboat in Sausalito. Living on the water infiltrated my dreams."
Kristin Texeira was born in Massachusetts and now lives in New York. She graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2010 with distinction and departmental honors. She has had the opportunity to partake in residencies in the states and abroad, has exhibited on both coasts and in Europe. She paints to provide proof—for herself and others—of existing in certain moments in time. Her paintings capture, document, and preserve memories, and retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching and writing. Through colour she tries to remedy nostalgia; her paintings are the vessels that ferry viewers back in time, so they can encounter a moment again and again.
