I’ve known Chrissy for near a decade now and have had the immeasurable honour of not only observing her powerful presence on stage from close proximity but also standing aside her accompanying in performance. Following my successful Archibald Prize entry 2015, I decided to strategise a gender balance in my subjects and so I chose Chrissy for 2016.
