Patterns of Obsession: Claes Gabriel & Andrew Chalfen
Gabriel is a Philadelphia-based artist from Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His hand-stretched canvas sculptures reference his own imagined tales. Chalfen is a self-taught artist who paints intensely patterned works of art that are inspired natural and man-made patterns.
"Patterns of Obsession" highlights Claes Gabriel’s and Andrew Chalfen’s unconventional approach to painting and color. Similar to the obsessive patterning found within Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, Gabriel and Chalfen have distinctive methods in the design, layering, and color play of their work.
