Viewing Krista Israel’s works is like entering a story. The works are pleasing to the eye. Her works look realistic and transcend the real situation, mixing into the complex emotions of the creator and the viewer. The artist is particularly good at creating glass materials. Mix different types of materials, such as borosilicate glass, silicone, toy fillers, fabrics, false eyelashes, jewelry decoration, nylon rope and other materials in this work. She uses the natural properties of glass to express her thoughts and reflections on the world and people, responding to our need for happiness. At the same time, the combination of different techniques, materials and her ideas makes her work complex and interesting and full of humor.
