‘The Red Velvet Hound Gossaert Diorama’ is printed, hand and laser cut and framed in England. This piece is from a limited edition of 75 and is printed onto Matt Smooth Fine Art Cotton 300 gsm.

The Red Velvet Hound Gossaert Diorama is a re-imagining of The Adoration of the Kings by Jan Gossaert a French Renaissance painter born in 1478. The depth, the colour and the highly detailed oil painting drew Kristjana to this work and she imagined providing the stage for a riot of birds and mammals border with red velvet curtains. This exploration allowed her to create a diorama with the depth that makes the multiple layered work and creating a whole new stage, feel and a explore of the work. Each of the 6 layers are hand and laser cut and slotted into a bespoke dark brown wooden frame with double anti reflective glass.

About The Artist - Kristjana S Williams

Born in Reykjavik in 1974, Kristjana spent much of her childhood looking out over Iceland’s spartan landscape of black sand and frozen seas, dreaming of new worlds filled with abundant animal and plant life. This wanderlust fostered a love of maps and botanical engravings which, after completing her degree in graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins in London, became the foundation of Kristjana’s work.

Described by the New York Times as part of the ‘new antiquarian movement’ her fine art pieces, prints, fashion and furniture see vintage illustrations of exotic animals and insects layered over lavish foliage and antique maps to reimagine fantastical new creatures and what she calls ‘wishful forests’. These whimsical two and three dimensional tableaus have won Kristjana many international awards including The Pentawards, D&D in book, Clio Award and first prize in the New York Festivals Grand Prix.

Her aesthetic which is at once both mythical and modern has led to collaborations
with heritage brands such as Harrods, Fortnum and Mason, Chanel and the Connaught Hotel, and iconic contemporary firms such as Paul Smith, Christian Louboutin and The Shard London. Kristjana lives and works in West London.
