All The King’s Men

I am applying a common nursery rhyme to my recurring narrative between nature, science and civics. Mixed media, both natural and synthetic, speaks best for me to have this conversation due to the varied natures of the materials. These include paint, wood, metal and plastic. Many are medical necessities from my intimate, daily rituals in caretaking within a domestic, yet medically fragile setting. It is from this perspective that I work.

Knowledge of death is fodder for all human adult behavior, be that behavior just or unjust in the wavering landscapes of judgment. Our strengths are products of human fragilities that stretch limitations. And most limitations are self-imposed, often influenced by outside agencies.

During my residency at Shoebox Projects I will reduce these ideas to form through new arrangements. My intention is to transform physical and mental challenges from weaknesses to strengths. With this installation, I hope to slow people down enough to quiet their noise and offer, through a bit of absurdity, the opportunity to “hear” something they may not have before.

Kristine Schomaker is a new media and performance artist, painter and art historian living and working at the Brewery artist complex in Los Angeles. For over 14 years she has been working with various interdisciplinary art forms including online virtual worlds to explore identity and the hybridization of digital media with the physical world. Whether virtual or physical, the object-based work Kristine creates combines elements of color-based gestural abstraction, animation, pattern and design, neo-Baroque and Populence. Using installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance for her ongoing conceptual project My Life as an Avatar, she visualizes a narrative/dialogue with her virtual persona, Gracie Kendal. Kristine then documents her experiences on her blog. In 2012, exploring ideas of community, Kristine turned a local gallery into a modern day creation of Gertrude Stein’s salon of the 1920’s with a live mixed-reality dinner party merging the physical world with the online virtual world. Over the summer she also performed The Bald and the Beautiful in which she had her head shaved as a statement to challenge society’s standards of beauty. Currently, Kristine is working as an Artist-in-Residence through the Linden Endowment for the Arts creating an immersive virtual environment which she is planning to bring into the physical world via sculpture/public art work.
