The Tree of Hope
The Tree of Hope, minted October 1st, 2020 beautifully depicts a tree, mushrooms and all sorts of foliage sprouting up hopefully in what looks to be a once hopeless place. Kristy Glas’s first few tokens on SuperRare (this is the very first) have some elements of glitch art to them, which is a style she seems to have moved away from more recently, making these first tokens even more rare.
Perhaps one of the most “2020” artworks we’ve seen recently, Spiraling, which was minted on December 1st, 2020 gives us a chaotic but very pleasing visual. Digital art collectors should take note that this is a unique piece for Kristy Glas, there is nothing quite like it in her portfolio.
Minted on January 4th, 2021, Space Cat, just like the rest of the crypto market, is going straight to the moon. This is a piece where Kristy Glas specifically calls out the crypto market in the description of the piece, and accurately depicts the state of the market at the time.
Ascension, which was minted on February 6th, 2021 seems to be the first in a series of three pieces with a similar style, the other two are Innocence and Empathy. Digital are collectors would likely pay attention to the fact that these tokens, while fitting her style, look different from her earlier works. If she continues to make more of this style, Ascension would likely garner some attention as the first in this line.
