Cystal Beshara from Ottawa makes works that are based in flora, fauna and architecture. As the artist states,
“I like to tell a story with my work; to create a new perspective and invite the viewer to come up close - to see a memory that they recall, a place or feeling that strikes a chord emotionally, or a world that perhaps they’ve never seen. Sometimes this is done by creating mood through colour, other times it is the angle at which the subject is presented, through composition and cropping.”
Currently, Beshara is working on a solo show of mostly oils, to be exhibited in January 2013 at Orange Gallery. She is also working on some anatomical images for a new Television series called Hard Rock MEdical being filmed in Northern Ontario, which follows a group of med school students.
