In Chase-Daniel's 2011 series of black and white flatplate scanner photographs of the human body, we are engaged with a rare blend of intimacy and anonymity. As we move through this series, we are by turns seduced and repulsed, the anomalous becomes beautiful, the individual becomes universal. By the end, our sense of boundaries are blurred, between male and female, the beautiful and the ugly, the sacred and profane, youth and old age, self and other. Published by Axle Contemporary.
Born in 1965 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Matthew Chase-Daniel earned a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College in 1987. His studies in art have taken him from his grandmother's knee (abstract expressionism) to the coasts of the Pacific Northwest (native mask carving), and Paris, France (filmmaking at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes). He has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1989, making things ranging from photography to sculpture, drawings, fireplaces, and houses. He is the co-founder of Axle Contemporary, a mobile gallery of contemporary art.
