A Texas transplant, Chase Matthew Stafford is currently a BFA candidate at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.  In 2015 he participated in the annual new media project Currents and the Outdoor Vision Fest in Santa Fe and was a recipient of a SITE Santa Fe Scholar Award in 2016.

Stafford’s work references the Light and Space movement of the 60s and 70s, whose major protagonists were Robert Irwin, Larry Bell, Bruce Naumann, James Turrell. and John McCracken.  His current video work pays homage to the spatial manipulation of Dan Flavin’s Minimalism, but rather than immersing the viewer in the visual experience, the viewer participates through the physical interruption of the projections.

Chase Stafford Description

A Texas transplant, Chase Matthew Stafford is currently a BFA candidate at Santa Fe University of Art and Design.  In 2015 he participated in the annual new media project Currents and the Outdoor Vision Fest in Santa Fe and was a recipient of a SITE Santa Fe Scholar Award in 2016.

Chase Stafford Statement

I am an installation based artist who explores spatial relationships. My work acknowledges questions of confluent space and plays with the viewer's biased understanding of imagery. Drawing is a device I use to navigate space, and transform the perception of the viewer. In order to do this I have to draw sculpturally, allowing the work to become an intervention that the viewer encounters. A 3D object is stagnant and must be navigated, a confluent object navigates the viewer, and shares the viewer's space. After seeing a series of Dan Flavin installations at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Tx, my interest in the visceral effect light has on the viewer became my obsession. My understanding of space became my medium. I consider my recent video work to be about unveiling truth. I have been making believable fluorescent light projections that turn off when the viewer steps in front of the projector, making the viewer discern fact and fiction.
