Kristal Kordich- Crandall
Kristal Kordich-Crandall ( Kristal KC) is a Montréal artist and poet originally from Victoria, BC. Prior to obtaining her Fine Arts Degree at Concordia University, Kristal studied privately in Canada and Germany and attended Vancouver’s Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.
While her predominant interest is magic realism, Kristal’s passion for art history and phenomenology in art has lent her works broad appeal through an immersion in many styles, with themes ranging from the political to the philosophical.
Since coming to Montréal eight years ago, she has participated in several group exhibitions, including at the FOFA Gallery, VAV Gallery, Centerfold Gallery, Mainline Gallery, MAI, Glassdoor Gallery and Studio Béluga. Often commissioned by private individuals, Kristal’s works can be found across Canada as well as in France, Germany, New York, Florida, and California.
In these works, Kristal Kordich-Crandall explores the relationship between perception, culture, and identity, as they relate to the human experience. Drawing from a wide array of sources – from the digital and art historical to psychological and literary theory – these subtle and uncanny narratives border between the quotidian and dreamscape, questioning both their own construction and the self’s role in creating reality.
