I got a review from my Artist Lecture!
“Chrissy recently gave an artist lecture at the Port Moody Arts Association. The group learned how to not only see but feel and understand through her lecture. Chrissy’s art demo was immensely informative and inspirational.
I like how she took the group on a journey. It was a visual history lesson on famous painters and their unique styles. Chrissy showed how to grind pigment and make paint. She also had an enjoyable film of why it began like this. I enjoyed the slide show and the explanation of her paintings; particularly the paintings titled BIPOLAR AND DEPRESSION. The work had movement, it was fresh and innovated.
We also learned a new take on colour theory. The talk Chrissy Cheung gave was extraordinary. You could feel the energy and the attentiveness from the audience. Especially that moment when all the chairs moved forward. The dead silence that followed. You could of heard a pin drop while the members waiting for her to continue.”
