All Eyes On: Kristine Narvida

She lives and works in Germany in Berlin and Potsdam and is mother of four daughters. She is an active member of the Brandenburg Association of Artists. She presents and sells her fine artwork throughout Europe and globally with online galleries. Kristine prefers working with oil on linen, using models as her subjects.


The relationship between certain parts of the work and its entireness excites me. I shape my space of solitude and the work that evolves lives its own life, defiantly independent of me. I like to wonder how colours happen and to maintain the dimensions in constant tension. That is instantaneous awareness of fulfilment that can just as instantly disappear. My search involves clear form-expressed messages in which what is present asks for the truth. The gaze is not a simple movement of eyes, it involves knowledge, experience, and an explanation. I go through this process, overcome myself and this leads to the choice I have made and gives me joy as a creator.

The study of annoyance

This study of aggravation is silence that becomes visible. The tension between language and the world where the existing demands its possibility, and not the possible its existence. This is a passionate look at the present, where the surface of things and the superficiality of people are so truly full of meaning and pain. The search for context, the wish to escape, and the inability to do so. The introduction of bright block colour in the work of this series is a conceptual idea to find a path to identify and to get rid of the unnecessary.
