Acrylic on Panel
Chalfant’s work delves into the ways we experience our most personal images. How do we hold them, alter them, imagine or escape them? Why do we revisit them over and over again? Largely through paintings of photographs she explores her own memories, the collective memories of her family, and worlds she has created. With heavy influence from the photographic image, Chalfant’s work points to the role of image as storyteller, collector, historian, and deceiver.
