Krystle Collins is a native of Louisiana, currently living and working in New York, NY.
A self-taught artist, her interest began at a young age and has been cultivated over the years. Growing up in a small Southern church inspired her to capture the intimacy of the human figure. Studying the emotion-filled faces, the slightest turn of a body, and even the careless placements of a hand, sparked her curiosity about the forms that surround us daily.
Her work explores the direct relation between the observation and interpretation of love, pain, joy, power, melancholy, anxiety and stimulation. The subjects, often female, are portrayed in a light that embodies strength, with a sense of familiarity that allows the audience to connect. Using bold lines, shapes and posture to depict her vision, Krystle’s work captures and appreciates the beauty in identifying the outer expression of our inner nature
