Chanel works in the moment. Surrendering feelings onto a surface is her way of suggesting that there is a personal narrative behind all of the vibrant, lively lines and colour. She represents time through change; the evolution of varying colour waves, sporadic mark marking, and the constant struggle of trying to reveal the contrasting moments amongst the haziness. The first impression of passion and energy then carefully wanders to afterthoughts of suppression and distraction. Chanel approaches the story behind her work from a mental health perspective. The paintings are internal battles, that she is actively working through every day. Chanel transfers her minds thinking process and train of thought onto something that we can see and talk about.
