Mixed Media, Painting
About the artistCrissy Arseneau is a multidisciplinary artist living in Vancouver, Canada. Working primarily in painted collage, her colourful interwoven worlds and micro-landscapes offer an intimate escape from the chaotic world, while celebrating its beauty. Inspiration is found in memories of growing up in British Columbia, in the pages of geoscience and astronomy publications, and in the art materials themselves. Painted surfaces are cut and precisely assembled into dimensional paintings, elements often rising above each other and their support, with colour, shape, line, and shadow collaborating to create stylized landscapes and planetary views. Looking at and into these ordered yet playful scenes offers a suggestion of the restorative power of the natural world and the wonder of the cosmos that surround it.
