"My work is the essence of a sentient process used to survey recollection, place and sensation. It is a visual language to make an invisible reality tangible enough to arouse a moment of connection. It is nature, the nature of things and our own organic fragility, insecurity and persistence."
Crit Streed tracks time and response using an intuitive reflex and her analytic nature. The medium is ink on paper and the approach is intense but not preplanned. The drawings are reciprocal for the artist and reveal the effect of surroundings and the impact of experience. Forms in the drawings often expose natural growth intersected by human interaction and the tremor of events. Crit Streed explores installation and video as well as a performative approach to drawing.
Crit Streed has exhibited both nationally and internationally. She credits her creative explorations to a life in Iowa, extensive travel to other cultures and how her synapses fire.
