To be an artist is to try and reach across the divide and connect. We all experience joy and love and that beautiful poignancy that makes us human. If my paintings can evoke a feeling in you that says “yes I too have felt that” then I am happy.
Crispin Korschen initially trained as an illustrator but has been a full time exhibiting artist for over twenty years. Having had a break from painting for five years she has returned with new enthusiasm and fresh eyes.
Her work is characterised by colour and a creative abundance. Her layering of forms and colour provoke a sense of familiarity and otherworldliness at the same time. As an established artist, she has explored many themes and is still driven by a curiosity to explore the human condition through botanical imagery and vast skies, evoking nostalgia and delight. Crispin is currently living in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. Inhabiting a place with panoramas of water, expansive skies and evocative islands has resulted in the inspiration for her current works.
She has had many sell-out solo exhibitions and her work can be found in many New Zealand and overseas private collections.
