Christianna Kreiss

Originally from Germany, Christianna Kreiss has been living in Pittsburgh since 1999. Her work explores the geometric forms as seen in architecture, cityscapes and nature through the medium of photography. While her images can be representational on the first view, they also invite the observer to a more dream-like and abstract visual journey. She uses both digital photography as well as alternative photographic printing processes such as cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown or salt printing. These early photographic techniques have their own sensibility by creating monochromatic and sometimes slightly blurry images, letting the viewer travel back in time and into their own memories. She is a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Society of Artists and has exhibited in their group shows.
