Hybrid Form Essays

Artist Statement

Kyrie Eleison is an artist and personal essayist. With an interest in anachronisms, she believes that personal stories are hidden everywhere. Through experimentation, she plays with hermit crab essays to hide literary stories.  She plans to continue to experiment with hybrid forms, particularly in the realm of nonfiction. The goal of this project is for the viewer to discover the power of stories that are where one may not expect. This growing collection exhibits such works.
