Artist Profile

Christine Chaise-Greenwood

Medium: Acrylic paint and oil pastels

Description:  Mixed media abstract & figurative impressionism, paintings and sculptures

I paint to be here, now, and to narrate a story that words can't express. One of the many pleasures I experience from creating images is to explore the thin line between controlled technique and accidental effect. Most of my paintings contain a blend of the two. My work is a mix of realistic and surrealistic styles. I like abstract painting because it touches the imagination, it has the ability to turn an impression into an image and vice versa. It gives me and my viewers the freedom to say and to feel more with less boundaries. My art work has so much energy drawn from the subconscious that I usually need time and perspective to decipher the symbols and images. I begin drawing or painting with no preconceived ideas. By doing so, I project my visions spontaneously on the paper with little interference from the intellect. I truly enjoy the interpretations, story telling and the emotional reactions I get from from the viewers.
