Chase Langford uses a topographical sensibility in his abstract paintings, embracing a style he calls 'Geographic Expressionism.' The undulating repetitions of form in his Morphic series suggest sediment, earth, flowing water, and geological formations. With a color sensibility that is both vivid and nostalgic, Langford's paintings convey the elusive emotions of particular locations. Paintings are titled after landmark features such as Blake Island in the Salish Sea, Miramar Beach on Florida’s gulf coast, and the Farallon Islands, visible from San Francisco on clear days.
