Kristin Nelson's work expresses a simplicity and innocence, which touches the deepest of our emotions. As an American primitive painter, Kristin has been collected and exhibited since the age of seventeen when, inspired by the death of President John F. Kennedy, she was moved to express her feelings in the painting "When the Kennedys Were in the White House." A self-taught artist, she has continued to paint all her life, coming into national prominence when Jacqueline Kennedy purchased her painting of the White House from her first one-woman show.

about Kristin

Kristin Nelson's work expresses a simplicity and innocence, which touches the deepest of our emotions. As an American primitive painter, Kristin has been collected and exhibited since the age of seventeen when, inspired by the death of President John F.

Her first book "Out Of My Mind" (Kristin Nelson Tinker) was published by Harry N. Abrams in 1997. It is an art-autobiography containing more than one hundred full color paintings that portray thirty years of American dreaming in the decades following a postwar America. The book resonates powerfully with the readers of Nelson's generation. Kris uses her paintings, family photographs, diary entries, her poems and well-chosen selections from contemporary songs and poems. She tells the story of her life growing up in the Fifties in a formidable family. One that, like the nation at large - papered over the reality of emotional pain and conflict with the images of happiness; of a marriage to a gifted man who got lost on the way to adulthood. Her struggles as a single parent, intense emotional crisis, recovery, and an increasingly strong belief in herself as an artist are all part of the story. "Out Of My Mind" is a moving record of the great (and, occasionally, the not so great) moments in her family history, an extraordinary document of a life divided between the private quest for emotional truth and the landscape of our collective myths.

About fine art prints

McGill Company is pleased to offer: GICLEE REPRODUCTIONS of Kristin Nelson's ORIGINAL WORKS

ABOUT GICLEE PRINTING

Giclee (jhee-clay) - Derived from the french verb gicler meaning to squirt. The term giclee print typically connotes a certain elevation in printmaking technology. Images are high resolution digital scans printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates. The giclee process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.

Giclee prints (also known as Iris prints, accurate only if printed on an IRIS Printer) are advantageous to artists who find it not feasible to mass produce their work, but want to reproduce their art as needed.

Once an image is archived, additional reproductions can be made with minimal effort and cost. Thus the up-front cost of mass production is eliminated and printing is done on demand.

Another tremendous advantage to Giclee printing is that artwork can be reproduced to almost any size and on various media, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR FINE ART GICLEE PRINT

Unpacking

• It is important that your fine art print not remain in its shipping tube any longer than necessary. Have it framed right away.

Handling

• Wear cotton gloves. Work on a large flat surface. Support the long sides of the sheet with both hands. If the piece is very large, hold up the shorter ends with arms extended and let the long slides dip smoothly in the center without dimpling or crumpling. If possible, protect the area to be touched with folded acid-free tissue or Pellon.
• Allow only tagboard and high-quality acid-free materials to come in contact with works of art on paper.
• These prints are water miscible from both sides. Do not apply materials containing water or saliva, including archival tapes that must be licked or sponged, to either side of the print. Use gummed archival paper tape. Be careful of excessive perspiration or sneezing directly onto the print.

Framing

• UV Plexiglass or Lucite UF3 are preferred to glass to further protect the work against light damage or physical damage caused by shattered glass.

Lighting

• Works on paper are highly sensitive to the effects of any type of intense illumination and should not be exposed to direct sunlight, unfiltered fluorescent lamps, or the heat of incandescent bulbs.
• Light levels in gallery and storage areas should be kept low, at 5 to 8 footcandles.
• Works on paper must never remain uncovered if not on display or being examined.
• In storage, protect from all light.

Humidity and Temperature

• Maintain a temperature of 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 21 degrees Celsius) and relative humidity of 45 to 55 percent.
• Excessive dampness, dryness, heat, and fluctuations in relative humidity and temperature will have a detrimental effect.
