"In my painting practice I cultivate recurring subject matters of nature, people and my perception and relation to them. Revisiting subject matter is both a comfort as well as a commitment to a push deeper.
When exploring the subject of the female nude, I seek to study through participation the dynamic and facets of the women close to me. I’m inspired by the expansion and contraction between the entirety and individualism of the divine female. I aim to depict that through tender glimpses of shared experiences. Exposed is my gaze, looking lovingly at women through the eyes and body of a woman.
Through larger scale paintings that create a life-size environment, I then get to invite the viewer amongst us, which initiates a shift between gazing at and being part of the experience.
Spending time in the nude together is an experience of liberation, not only in that moment, but also through the knowing that this private and exclusive experience and our relationship will be projected outward through the paintings.
Turning intimacy outward mirrors my painting practice itself. I believe that the process of painting is mine alone, but the finished painting belongs to everyone".
The focus of Chrissy Angliker’s work lies in creating a balanced relationship between the controllable and uncontrollable. Chrissy depicts that concept through the relationship she is cultivating with her medium of paint. For every intentional mark, the nature of the medium is challenging it. The artist is searching for a sense of grace in the transition between these two opposing elements.The theme of her work arose from her feeling of life itself being a balance between control and chaos. “As people, we have intentions, but must anticipate the intervention of outside forces beyond our power.”The finished paintings capture the relationship created by aiming to balance these extremes to capture a whole, and frank representation of the subject.
Her art is focused on visually translating her perception of herself in relationship to the world. Chrissy’s work has been shown in Europe and the US, and has been featured in several international publications. She has been commissioned to collaborate with several companies, among them AOL, Burton and Wired Magazine. Her most recent solo show, "Bodies of Water", was held at the Swiss Consulate in New York.
