Can Paint, Will Travel

Criss Chaney has been making art for over 20 years. Her first art career was in glass sculpture, which she did full time in the UK for over 10 years. In 2013 Criss took some time away from the studio to live a nomadic life, travelling the world, living in France, Japan, Alaska, and New Zealand before she finally settled down in Australia to resume her art career.

Having previously been a sculptor she made the transition to painting because it enabled her to create large works of art with minimal space and equipment. Currently, Criss works with acrylic paints and mixed media incorporating collage elements and texture into her canvases. She is inspired by the Melbourne city scape and it's endlessly changing street art.

To create her art, Criss begins with an idea, mocks it up digitally to perfect the composition, and then applies it to the canvas. Often by the time it becomes fully realised as a painting it's very different from the original plan. Criss finds her inspiration in books and music, which she loves to listen to in the studio. In the future Criss plans to explore possibilities with oil paints and working larger scale.

Criss' art is about the human experience, spirituality and the subconscious. Throughout time and across cultures humans have felt the need to create religions, spiritual practices, and art to express their subjective and intuitive experiences. Criss' art is an exploration of these ancient themes set into modern contexts.

Criss Chaney is an internationally recognised artist, who has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe, and the United States. Including a solo exhibition at the Museum Humanum in Austria. She is available for commissions and has completed several private and corporate commissions including one for HSBC Bank. Criss now works from her home studio in Richmond, VIC.
