Kalon Kakon: The Beautiful-Evil Thing
Paper Collage by Kris Mortensen

In this new series of works, artist Kris Mortensen utilizes a mixed-media approach to investigate the mythologizing of the female form. Using coloraid, Guasch, ink, and pencil, these artworks present a visual commentary that seeks to deconstruct internalized misogyny surrounding female archetypes in world mythology.
