Press Release

Court Tree Gallery proudly presents Interviews and Incidents by Brooklyn based artist Kristin Texeira. Kristin's oil on paper works have become her own personal stamp. She uses color, sketches and writing to document and preserve her memories. Last year, she made an astounding 6,000 paintings. Not many young artist are nearly as prolific. With this incredible work ethic her work has the unique ability to reach the masses. We first noticed her work at last year's Art on Paper show. It has since followed us around. Literally bumping into her Brooklyn Heights mural and her Tictail Market mural on the lower east side. Upon announcing this show, two friends from overseas (Japan and Paris) shared that they also owned a few her paintings. There is something about her work that is relatable on the highest level of the viewer's senses. The original color palettes, the unique shapes, the passages that accompany them. There seems to be something in them for everyone. Kristin Texeira is definitely an artist to watch. Her work has been exhibited both domestically and internationally. This is her first show with Court Tree Gallery.

I paint to provide proof—for myself and others—of existing in certain moments in time. I paint to capture, document, and preserve memories. I translate the essence of moments through color by mixing up the poetics of people and places. I retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching and writing. This process preserves memories as tangible "maps." I often juxtapose these memory maps with short captions that form the foundation for the colors I mix.

I paint to remember. Through subtle shifts in colors or ranges of contrasting colors, I attempt to create something familiar, and—at the same time—something entirely elusive and intangible, like a forgotten word on the tip of one's tongue. My colors blend and bounce off of each other. They tell of a person or place's ambiguous history. This vagueness is complemented by specifics in my writing, which—while focusing on a moment's singular identity and tender details—leaves much to the viewers' interpretation.

Color is what I see when I hear music, taste wine, or read the titles of short stories. It is how I decipher new places when traveling, and the people I meet along the way. Through color I am trying to remedy nostalgia; my paintings are the vessels that ferry viewers back in time, so they can encounter a moment again and again.

Court Tree Collective was established in 2013 by a group of artists and creatives with the primary purpose of representing and supporting the work of emerging and established contemporary artists. Since its opening Court Tree Collective has been a staple to south Brooklyn’s emerging art scene and in a short time has exhibited a number of important exhibitions. In addition they have curated a number of exhibitions at satellite locations throughout the states and abroad.

We are a family-run art gallery specializing in emerging artists to offer a unique and intimate experience for art enthusiasts. Court Tree Collective showcases outsider art, which often defies traditional artistic conventions, alongside works by up-and-coming artists to add depth and diversity to the gallery's offerings. Visitors can expect to encounter raw, authentic expressions of creativity that challenge perceptions and ignite curiosity. By nurturing rising talent and championing unconventional voices, the gallery plays a vital role in fostering a vibrant and inclusive art community.

Our gallery is curated by artists for artists, which fosters a dynamic and supportive environment where creative visionaries can thrive. With firsthand understanding of the artistic process, the curators can showcase works that resonate deeply with both artists and audiences.
