Anthony Chase's plaster paintings are the culmination of years spent creating artisanal venetian walls for his clients. Deciding to evolve his practice into creating individual paintings, Chase uses the techniques he has honed and brings a bold sense of form, tone and texture to the work. In discussion, Chase says, "In this series of paintings I am exploring the luminosity and textures produced by burnished lime and impregnated marble chips - materials I know well and about which I am passionate. As my wall surfaces are transformed into framed objects, the simple dance of bold shapes, the juxtapositions of textures and the impact of raking the light enliven the forms".
With a background in avant-guard, experimental film making and set design, Chase was a recipient of a Bessie Award and a NEA fellowship. His work in film has been included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
