Native Hawaiian artist Kris Chau currently resides in Philly where she creates colorful and quirky paintings. Working with two separate mediums, crow quill pen and ink as well as acrylic, Chau’s work is brightly colored and often includes snips of hand written text. The texts appear to be linked to the characters portrayed in the works, allowing the reader into their assumed state of minds. The figures also often act as vessels for plant life, and occasionally sprout flower- like tumors from their hair and skin. This inclusion of flora and fauna imagery cements Chau’s poetic work within a unique feminine perspective.
