Artist Statement

I have a lot of feelings, and sometimes things get out of control and I no longer feel like I have any say. That loss of control is terrifying, and is hard to express with words, so I create art about it. “Chaos” is a 2D animation and a visual representation of the chaos I feel on a daily basis in my own head. It starts off slow, not super loud but still there, and then suddenly there’s a large dragon of emotion in my face. I can better express my overwhelming emotions by making them fantastical in nature. I felt that fantastical abstraction would provide clarity for the viewer as well as myself. It’s easier to be able to see the wave of emotions crashing over me every day with a face, as a creature that wishes to engulf me. I use vague shapes to express my confusion on the things I find within myself, and my uncertainty to who I am as a person. 

Biography

Kit Vikre is a NIU Time Arts BFA candidate. They were born in Zion, Illinois in 1999 and moved to Belvidere, Illinois early in life. They discovered their particular style of art by watching anime and then evolved from there to more of a mix between Western cartoons and anime. During their artistic career, there had been plenty of pent-up emotions from their childhood, things they had no outlet to express until they discovered art, and so they set to work on finding their passion in expressing their emotions by the fantastical, cartoony art they specialize in. Their art has drastically changed over their career, moving away from the traditional anime style and turning it into something completely different, something they can call their own as they progress.
