The Chiaozza Chapel, installed within Cooler Gallery, is an intimate space celebrating colour, light and form. Five painted wooden wall works fill the 6- by 7-foot gallery. The formal compositions reference natural and metaphysical concepts such as horizons, atmosphere, time, landscape, and ritual. Repetitive motifs such as grids, diagonals, and arcs augment the visual vibration of the room.
In Chiaozza’s work, color is a vessel for experience. Matte opaque pigment blurs the presence of the sculpture’s surface and its surroundings. Light bounces off the painted wooden planks, creating reflected chambers of color that animate the air around and within each piece.
