Featured Artist: Kristine Suhr

Check out the clever mechanical paintings of artist Kristine Suhr.
This piece, entitled Meeting, is over a meter wide. When the viewer turns the crank on the front the figures move. Mouths open, heads nod, fingers tap, and the man in the front rocks the chair with his foot.

I saw some animated vintage portraits at a recent auction. So while the idea of animated paintings has been around a while, Kristine Suhr has a playful, distinctive, modern style. Clever stuff and lots of fun!

Visit Kristine Suhr's nicely constructed web site to see this and many other works. [Thanks Falk!]

Indeed very clever and playful stuff. This female artist did a great job combining her painting and automata-making skills to create an interesting form of art. They make great conversation pieces at home, in an office or a boardroom.
