VINCENT CHAHLEY

Chelsea International Photography Competition
January 27 – March 8, 2018
Reception: Thursday, February 1, 2018 6-8 PM

The works of Vincent Chahley are a cross-section of digitality and physicality, where details commingle with perceptual gestalts to give viewers a novel perspective on the interrelationship between geography and art.

His artistry lies in the defamiliarization of the familiar with a tendency to portray his chosen subject-matter — mainly geographical formations such as peninsulas and mountains — as though they possessed an animate, independent life. Chahley translates spatial mapping into a game, where a mountainous crest, beachy shore, or a protruding landmass can exist abstracted from the contexts that would typically define its growth and features.
