Los Angeles based artist Krista Machovina has always been drawn to the water, and has worked with the theme of the sea since 2010. Recently, upon viewing her grandmother’s scrapbooks from the 20’s and 30’s, she found pictures of her relatives enjoying the water as much as she did. Though all of these Ohio based immigrants have passed away, working with their photos of a shared pleasure has allowed Krista to get to know them in a different way. Her father’s Air Force career took them far from the Ohio of her ancestors, but brought the family to other shores including Washington, California, the Philippines, Rhode Island and North Carolina. Near and Distant Shores represents the elements of distance in both time and location. It features minimalist seascapes and portraits of water as well as mixed media pieces incorporating grandparents and great grandparents and other relatives.
