About The Artwork

Kristjana has taken her acclaimed Skeleton artwork to the next level, creating a stunningly unique pair of original three-dimensional artworks, each rich with fine and bejewelled embroidery pieces as well as intricate giclée paper motifs. Golden and Violet Bones explore the contradictions associated with being human; from riding high with a mental clarity and spring in the step in one moment, to being thwarted and momentarily immobilised, burdened by the weight of uncertainty in the next. These bones, these ruins of the imagination, are home now to fantastical creatures of sea and air, evolving metaphors for the soul within. Plants grow from cadaverous bones, breathing new life and creating a stunning composition of colour and shape. Embrace the colours of the sun, the earth, heat and light. A pair of golden fish encircle the skull, swimming down towards a tropical display of warmth and vitality - the hummingbird and orchid breathing life to the area where the heart is absent. Trees flourish from the pelvis as swinging arms graze bejewelled insects and tiny butterflies. A magenta bee tickles the tibia while at the restless feet sits a seductive heron, a symbol of stability and wisdom. A stunning celebration of nature in 3D: a strong and powerful lion with its family of cubs immediately draw the eye, their monochrome tone a counterpoint to the rich and vibrant border. A kaleidoscope of colour, life and vibrancy brings the inner secrets of the jungle to the fore. From deep in the undergrowth, the eyes of a soulful crane, a stealthy crocodile and radiant flamingo peer out; unseeing, or in warning? Butterflies in every shade of yellow and blue, navigate their tentative path, basking in the force and miracle of nature, uniquely depicted here in Kristjana’s stunningly impactful three dimensional artwork.

Iceland born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years. In 2011 she began creating fine art pieces, illustrating books, designing interiors items and more. Her designs are inspired by nature and her technique involves digitally and physically layering nature upon nature to mirror the symmetry in all living things. Each piece is it's own magical universe of exotic botanicals and vibrant animals. Williams’ work has become well known throughout the industry winning numerous awards including a D&AD award, Clio Award and a first prize at New York Festivals Grand Prix. Her work can be found at The Victoria & Albert Museum, Penhaligons perfumeries and various galleries and hotels nationally and internationally. Most recently she designed the album artwork for Coldplays new live album 'A Head Full of Dreams: Live in Buenos Aires and Live in Sao Paulo'.
