The Shape of a Soul
These three designs are a set created to reflect my experience living with chronic migraines over the last twenty years: the onset of migraines; constant debilitating migraines; and a shift in my internal narrative on living with migraines.
About the Artist
Kristin Dieng has been developing her skills as a glass artist for the last decade. When a chronic illness forced her to leave a previous career, Kristin sought out a new way of interacting with the world and found mosaic art. Kristin’s art explores the way in which light-filled art can serve as a source of healing. While she specializes in brightly colored nature-themed work and complex geometric patterns, Kristin finds particular joy in creating artwork that is interactive with both its viewer and its environment. Kristin is known for challenging people’s expectations about what constitutes stained glass art, experimenting with out-of-the-box techniques such as layering glass, and incorporating unexpected mixed media materials into her designs. Kristin’s work has been exhibited in galleries throughout MN and WI, and she exhibited her first solo gallery show at the Phipps Center for the Arts in 2021.
