Christine Hassay

Artists Statement

I graduated from Grant McEwan College in 1999 in Edmonton, AB with a Fine arts Degree. The focus of my studies was drawing, other area of study included Painting, Design, Photography, Art History, Contemporary Art Issues, Sculpture, & Installation. The artwork I create focuses on ordinary objects that have great meaning to us and uses traditional realism to express that feeling. My perspective is non traditional, I share the memory in my subjects by moving in close and examining their intimate details.  I share the joy in what I see. My medium of choice is acrylic on canvas. When you are an Artist, you are one 24/7. Creating happens, or doesn't happen, all the time and anywhere. Sometimes it can be extremely hard, and then sometimes it can be absolutely inspiring and amazing. My advice. Go out into the world and create!
