is its History, shape in the mind, shape in the mind/ eye, mine
or your's subconscious mind... It is a sacrament, a container for the Self
and a temple of the Holy Spirit, nature's wonderland. It is affecting my
mind, it is changing, unique for each person and requires care.
is is the the key to ineffective alternative. Natural as breathing
for being myself, mightier than the board and expressing itself through
Body. Endless process, spice of life, the key to a future, 'everyone's
enemy', the gift of love, more important than knowledge. The
key of life flowing through me, essential to my dreams and goals, allowing
me to make mistakes. It is a field, the tendency to generate or recognize
ideas, comprehending what others see and thinking afresh and making the
complicated simple. Exciting, available everywhere, refreshinlgy
contagious, helpful, my most valuable and most valued asset.
is a myth and table of contents, a terrible thing to waste without. Timeless
fighter over the matter faster than the eye. It is always working and recording
mental images. The expression of the brain and the body separately or in
a combined state, the key to complete leadership, a valuable investment
tool. It is going to order a herbal viagra or partake in a big scientific
research... Mind is about conditional predictions, beautiful when like
a still lake, enemy when without fear. Mind is just an analog machine,
not really in the head.

generally marked for extinction, only this is not recognised just as yet.
Now a few words about My Artwork: always a play, valuable gift,
love made visible, actually a series of unscheduled programmed operations
fixed in tangible medium of expression.

About the author: Kristina
Maskarin, unconventional artist.
Graduated at the School
for Applied Arts in Zagreb, Department of Textile 1987 and finished afterwards
several part-time courses in England during the '90-ties and won a 1st
place at the student year exhibition in '92 at the Hampstead School
of Art, Camden, London.
After return to Croatia,
Kristina works in tourism, running her own travel agency: see www.kristofor.hr,
continuing with her artwork and aspiring to bring the two; job and passion
Kristina has been always
interested in merging various ideas ( transcending influences), techniques
( mixed media) and areas (anthropology, humanism, history of art, cognition
), combining multidisciplinary approaches specially in her visual and creative
expressions. That became her 'handwriting', more than any particular
'style'; from traditional art & craft techniques, mixed media,
to contemporary digital media, art activism and new technology to mixture
She had a couple of group
exhibitions and in the '90-ties participated on ex-tempore in Volosko and
Grožnjan. First solo exhibition in the gallery of the S. Radic campus
in Zagreb in '95 under the leadership of Ksenija
Her work have been shown
internationally in online and offline venues such as Stoke Newington Festival
- Mme Lillie Quarter century show, Art Addiction 1st Medial Biennial, ISA
- International Society of Artists, Rhizome.org, Absolute arts.com, Artmajeur,
D'Art, Webism and more.
In 2005 she won Award of
Distinction / Prize of Excellence at the Art
Addiction 1st Medial Biennial, London among 258 artists from 56 countries
with 1857 artworks for her work RAYE.
Today rarely exhibites.
General Artist Statement:
The conditions and means
of artistic creation have changed drasticly through development of technology.
Many artist today, me included, use of numerouse tech- tools and move to
new virtual territories. New art genres are constantly formed in the digital
sphera; fine 2D arts, digital art actictivism, webart interventions, new
online visual arts and variouse projects. My digital works reflect my previouse
stage with mixed media; not they are digital new media artworks, created
mostly through individual creation but some are also part of collaborative
projects with other artists. Web has become our main medium; not only for
communication among each other but of creation as well.
However, the new media
also has its limitations; such as modality of creating by tool tech- grade
or availability, fear of virtual non freedom ( profiling, closed environments,
controlling, subjection, discrimination...). Main reality moulder
is Total merge of the industrial design, marketing and media, while Art
becomes consumer hi-tech industrial product. As means, technology usage
and accessability shows for what and to whom it serves, while the goals
do not have to be ( but can be) always presented and justified. It is evil
when the technology becomes the main tool and strongest weapon of the political
and ideological propaganda and economic slavery.

Kristina Maskarin won Award
of Distinction / Prize of Excellence:
The pictures in the portfolio
are not pure digital reproductins / scans of already existing works that
are just presented through an updated medium. I further worked on the imagery
to fit the digital medium. My artist map is thought of as a round project
of itself, not as pure artist presentation book. Therefore this website
is just sketching out an incomplete artwork show incorporating them in
this conceptual portfolio. Most of my very latest works are not present
A) Collectors buy the right
to broadcast the patter(s) as non-material installations for particular
event, rather than buying the artwork itself.
B) Sole-user licences for
the manufactures have to be contracted separately.
