Clearing Clouds
2013
9 x 12 in
Oil on Wood

Chrystal Chan’s painting evoke a sense of the surreal, but not in the way that is typical of Dali or Ryden, instead, it touches somewhere deep, into your childhood fantasies and your imagination.  This is what she intends.  When looking at her paintings, your mind is forced to grasp what is both in front of you and reach, stretch, for something more, some cosmic meaning in the dreamlike portraits she displays.
Her work, although showing a strong understanding of technique, is not in the term, technical.  She is able to make her images and messages clear without a perfect precision that some artists use as a must.  Using airy colors and constantly alluding to nature, she combines humanity with the earth, as though it were truly one, applauding the gods of the past that encompassed the seasons and the weather.  Her paintings use people, often women, as the embodiment of some greater natural phenomenon.  In some ways, her paintings could truly make you believe in Gaia.  
Chrystal Chan has said that to her artwork isn’t about the technical, but is rather about how a painting makes you feel when you stand in front of it (or view it from the best blog on this website ;) ).  Her intention is clear, and he goal is without a doubt achieved in her work.
