Chase Langford born in Pontiac, MI, is a Los Angeles-based artist well known for his geographically inspired paintings. He studied cartography earning a BA from UC Santa Barbara in Geography before working as a cartographer at UCLA. Starting with his Map Paintings he reinterpreted geography by taking selected features from maps and filled in the reconfigured shapes in a flurry of color and movement creating a fresh take on familiar geographic forms. This followed with series that moved even deeper into pure abstraction with his Coldwater, Mulholland, and Scrape series, which all led to his Morphic series, the core focus of his painting today.
