Crystal Derry's work portrays, movement, flow, energy and is an expression of her emotional and spiritual connection. The energy that flows through her while creating is infused into her work. Crystal Derry's work portrays life itself. One piece offers an aerial view of the earth, and another the universe at a cosmic level. Yet another might be the very building blocks of life on a microscopic level or an electrostatic discharge like what you would see during a thunderstorm . Even more intriguing, one single piece might offer all of the above and more. What do you see?
From another perspective Crystal conveys energy and emotion on to the canvas, manifested by an explosion of colours. The energy that flows in and through her while creating can later be revived and absorbed by the viewer, in a place beyond the visual sense. Bridging the apparent gap between artist and spectator on an emotional level, her work ultimately has the ability to serve as a reminder that there is something connecting us all. After all, the universe is built on energy.
Through self development, Crystal has reinvigorated and absorbed her own muse. She has come to respect her connection to creating art as a gift and loves embracing her creative flow. Mainly created with acrylics, Crystal's work is the result of a long and ongoing experiment with different techniques and learning through creating. Crystal's work will undoubtedly keep evolving as she continues to evolve along her artistic journey.
