Maria Chapin

Our limited and flawed visual perceptions will always dismiss the banal and familiar; we only see a fraction of the world in perpetual motion around us.

 Creating ethereal constructions with ordinary materials, extrusive time and focal alignments Maria transmutes the unseen into a universe of shapes, textures, and colors driven by emotions and existentialist questionings.

 These windows into the veils surrounding us are pure photographs, a form of alchemy without any post-processing. In effect, Maria’s images are the manifestations of what we cannot see, or choose to ignore, the complexities of what exists on the edge of knowledge and perception.
