Liam Barr, An Eclectix Artist Interview
Chrystal’s beautiful works reflect childhood, innocence and awakenings to reality. It is softly focused with an inner intellect or reference. Castles, princesses, little girls and fairy tales are often juxtaposed with darker elements –
“When I sculpted a girl, she was so cute I couldn’t bring myself to slaughter her.
Later – on a new piece, I went for it. The right element popped in when the time was right.”
“ When I’m creating, it’s not my objective to make an image that appeals to the largest demographic possible. I can’t please everyone and I just try to express myself in an honest way, no matter how it could …
“ When you experience or see things no child should, it really does manifest itself in the psyche. I certainly wouldn’t say it helped form who I have become but it does put a lot of crap into perspective …”
“ … I think an artist can never draw too much. Keep learning from looking at other artists, past and present and just experiencing life.”
