Since December 2013 up to September 2014 Kristina Kanaan is setting up her own works in progress inside the restaurant Il Viaggio, Ascoli Piceno.

Her intention is to involve visitors in the visual process.
The artist places natural raw materials on site where finished works are already on show.
Kristina Kanaan works in an extemporaneous way, and for most of the artworks there are no pre-conceiled  ideas.
The exhibition expresses her personal intense experience as she lives in symbiosis with the materials and the images she meets and discovers.

Her paintings and sculptures are strongly inspired by the sea. They communicate the sounds of the waves, they speak the language of stones, sand and wood, and they reflect the light of glass fragments.

The artist’s roots come out in a mixed-media painting started in Veszprem, Hungary, mixing soil from the locality with powder of travertine marble from Ascoli Piceno where the work will be finished. A sculpture created at a symposium in France consists of a trunk from Germany combined with Murano glass. This kind of work echoes her vital and essential experiences.
