Mask Portrait Series
The Mask Portrait Series is Krystl’s most current project. Krystl is a fiscal year 2021 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The series is now completed with a total of 35 portraits. The first time they will be displayed all together is set for January & February 2023 in Granite Falls at the K.K. Berge Gallery.
Layered Self Portraits
Please contact Krystl at email@example.com if you are interested in commissioning a portrait similar to these projects.
These were all done on vellum and range from 5×7″ to 8×10″.
