Spring Sunshine by Christina Chang

Artist’s Statement

Color, light, energy, and movement all come to mind when thinking about why I create art. I am never at a loss for ideas and the desire to create and paint is in me every day. I enjoy challenging myself to come up with new color combinations and applying them to the canvas surface. I find the process mesmerizing and meditative.

Although I was trained classically, and created art in many forms and expressions, capturing color, light, and shapes are primary goals in my latest creations. My work has evolved and transformed from portraying landscapes through an impressionistic style to abstraction. I am currently painting works that emphasize light in new ways. A stroke of the brush and the application of bold color are what drives my art to come to life.

I created the latest works with water-soluble oil paints on canvas. These paintings capture my love of painting and being outdoors, as well as my emotions and feelings. When I paint, I am able to express nonverbal feelings.

I enjoy working on many paintings simultaneously. I sometimes reference landscape photographs that I took at a particular location and find inspiration from those photos and my experience at that time. It is so gratifying to complete a painting with my own two hands and bring a painting from my imagination into existence.
