Cristall Harper

I remember an art field trip in Junior High. We went to a university and spent most of the day at the Department of Art History and Archeology looking at casts of Greek and Roman sculpture. I was so impressed by the carver’s skill and emotive gestures. There was such an immense feeling of creation in the room. My parents took us to Washington DC when I was in 6th grade and we spent the day at the National Gallery of Art and other attractions. I was so drawn to the larger-than-life paintings. I have so many experiences filed away in my memory like this – times when I’ve seen and really felt artwork. I think great artwork moves people towards something better.

 

When I made the jump to quit my day job and pursue art full-time, I didn’t know what I wanted to paint, or what my style would be, but after years of searching, I have landed in a place filled with color and light. Flowers are amazing. I crop my compositions in ways that put the viewer down on the ground, and then I zoom in to showcase the petals. The colors and shapes found are amazing. The metaphor here is that beauty can be found in unexpected places. That’s what I hope my paintings can offer people: a new perspective on flowers and hopefully, on themselves.
