Christina Allan's vibrant and expressive work explores profound aspects of the human experience through paintings of otherworldly creatures and dreamlike places. From dramatic mythical scenes to introspective psychological portraits, Allan creates a world of fantastical creatures that mimic the complexity of the human experience. These beings vary from sea creatures to the Grim Reaper—a recurring character in her work. Allan's imaginative interpretations of the unknown are born from her interest in our human psychological and philosophical struggles as well as the elaborate mythologies of ancient civilizations. Like ancient mythological Gods and Goddesses, her painted narratives present an escape from our absurd, quotidian existence.
