Vincent Chahley: The Geography of Desire

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Vincent Chahley in Chelsea International Photography Competition . The exhibition opens January 27, 2018 and runs through February 7,  2018 with an opening reception on Thursday, February 1 from 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.
