Based in Newport Beach, Kristina Grace is one of the most technically inventive artists on the Southern California coast, taking the California tradition of assemblage (the arrangement of found objects) into new territory. She painstakingly honed her skills in working with epoxy and polyester resins at a local surfboard glassing shop, and has incorporated surfing imagery into many of her sculptures. This floral piece is a splendid example of the highly textured and layered works of her recent Garden of Eden series.
