Chrissandra Unger is a Canadian painter and pianist who believes that art and music have close ties; elements of rhythm, harmony and texture being equally present in each creative facet. Colour represents melodic shape and tone, compostion being primary in both.
After completing her A.L.C.M. in piano at the London College of Music in England, she studied at Emily Carr Institute of Art in Vancouver, BC for three years.
Her work is based on textured acrylic paint that produces a rich and colourful compostion. She constructs framed panels on hardboard to support the weight and material compostion of the paintings; next she sculpts out the black lines which protrude, giving the appearance that it is carverd out the the board it is painted on; then she fills in the areas with more textured medium. Sometimes this texture and depth can be difficult to detect from photographs.
Her work is in private and corporate collections across Canada, and internationally.
