Artist Statement
Kristi Sword is an artist residing in Brooklyn, NY. Her work comes from her jewelry practice bridging jewelry and drawing by using each process as a means to inform the other. In 2008 she completed her MFA thesis at SUNY New Paltz in metals and jewelry. Her recent work uses enamel as a method to capture improvised drawings made with metal chain. The use of non-traditional materials also takes hold of Kristi’s work. Modular components assemble in her hands, losing their individual identity to shape new objects. Kristi’s pace and rhythm allows each stride to catch up to the other giving her time to reveal new direction.
