Chase Langford

Chase Langford’s painting practice emerges from a lifelong fascination with the endlessly varied forms of the natural world. This fascination began during childhood, and grew rapidly; by his teens, Langford had gathered a personal collection of over 1000 atlases and maps. His cartographic impulse quickly carried over to his studies in geography at UC Santa Barbara, and later to a job creating maps for faculty at UCLA. In the 1980s, with a perspective deeply informed by the rich visual patterns of the organic world, Langford began exploring ways in which he could integrate cartography and fine art. Equipped with skills in both life drawing and ceramics, he began a painting career inspired by natural phenomena both intimate and vast.

His stacks of brightly contrasting pigment recall sedimentary cross-sections as much as they do aerial views of rivers, valleys, and rock formations. Langford begins his canvases with impulsive mark-making, a technique that forms and gentles to a refinement of aesthetic in abstract, layered shapes. Graphic and linear, compositions nonetheless undulate across the canvas with a water-like flow; concentric circles of color are dense and distinct deposits, unmistakably reminiscent of rock strata formed over thousands of years.

Langford’s work is prominently displayed in residential and corporate collections worldwide, including the Four Seasons in Hong Kong, the Park Hyatt Aviara in California, and Nordstrom stores nationwide. He currently works from his studio in Los Angeles, California.

Chase Langford’s next exhibition will be May 2016 at Foster/White Gallery.
