Visiting artist Claudia Chaseling worked with students at the Architecture Ranch this past week. The group is developing plans for a mural and installation/performance. Chaseling is a painter working in large scale on canvas, walls/floors and objects, and in small scale on photos and in cartoon stories. Her central theme is landscape: how vast space and the dynamics of a place can be captured in interiors through color, without using parameters like horizon lines or central perspective.Through cartoons, expressionistic and fictional elements her work expands into a psychological landscape. Chaseling is based in Berlin, Germany. She works and exhibits internationally in Europe, Australia and the US.
