This painting depicts several seated figures in an interior scene. The artist’s work uses intentional marks to examine life’s push and pull between control and chaos. While working, the artist influences the paint rather than manipulates it—allowing herself to react to the nature of the medium.
Chrissy Angliker’s paintings visually translate her perception of herself in relation to the world. The artist's works create a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable, while the transitional tension between opposing elements represents the artist's search for grace. Angliker’s brushstrokes create ridges, crevices and peaks that place her compositions between strikingly painterly and figurative work and sculptural and impressionistic painting.
Balancing the controllable and uncontrollable, Chrissy Angliker’s paintings are translations of the artist’s perception of herself in relation to the world. The artist has a hybrid background in both painting and design and her process involves reacting to the medium of paint by influencing rather than manipulating it. The ridges, crevices and peaks created by Angliker’s brushstrokes place her paintings somewhere between two modalities—strikingly painterly and figurative, while also definitively sculptural and impressionistic.
