    About The Work

    The Chinatown Series was part of Chryssa’s ongoing minimalism, in particular regarding text as a medium of art. Chryssa has also represented New York's long history as home to immigrants in this series of works about Chinatown. Chryssa was always fascinated by language, perhaps because she had to learn not only a new language in the US, but also a new alphabet, since the Greek alphabet is Cyrillic. In a sense, these characters were abstracted and made in to individual artworks. She herself was also an immigrant, and the Chinatown series is also an homage to that. It has not been documented as to whether these characters in each of the 10 works in the Chinatown series had meaning beyond the extreme minimalist art form, as is seen throughout her work.
