INSPIRATION

Inspired by my recent trip to Maui, this series captures the fresh colors of the ocean and Hawaii's famous "island time" feeling. I crafted these pieces in such a way that you'll feel like you're still on vacation. Portals to tranquil beaches, dancing palm trees and that laid-back Aloha lifestyle you can only find in paradise.

Water lovers, beach goers, poolside cocktail mixologists, travel addicts, spf advocates, and summertime sun soakers…this series is for you.

So unwind, relax, indulge—it's island time!

Artist

Kristen Guest

I'm a landscape lover pulling inspiration from regional areas and nature for my creative choices; translating the beauty and atmospheric feeling of these places into marks, color, and texture that often result in dramatic shapes, gestural lines, and visual tension.

Though I use reference photos that I’ve taken from my travels for inspiration in the studio, I don't always focus on creating a loose rendition of a photo. Sometimes I will instead deconstruct the image in a very abstract way and infuse my painting with the feeling or ‘mood’ of these places, creating a comforting familiarity or nostalgia for viewers who have also visited and escaped to these iconic destinations.

Most of my travels take me to two regions that couldn’t be more opposite: the SoCal desert and Hawaii. Aside from their differences, they have one alluring thing in common: time has a way of standing still and you find yourself getting lost in your surroundings. It’s that feeling of being away on vacation—relaxing, wandering, exploring, indulging—that I enjoy “bottling up” into my work.
