Crissy Arseneau’s Artist Portfolio
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Crissy Arseneau describes herself as someone who “often strives for order but only occasionally finds it.” The hard edges and tight compositions of her “Cloud City” series come out of a period of experimentation with abstract watercolour. Cutting up these studies led her to the sense of order she was looking for. She writes, “Collage is a practice of limitations with unlimited outcomes. The limitations I’ve set for most of my current work is watercolour paper, both left unpainted and hand-painted with watermedia, that is then hand-cut and assembled. Each piece is an invitation to the viewer to look up and take in their world at the pace of nature.”
Collage is a practice of limitations with unlimited outcomes.
