CHRIS DOMENICK
June 2010

Brooklyn, NY – Chris Domenick is a visual artist that explores the intersections of perceptual, allegorical, and psychological phenomenon via traditional methods of representation. He creates works that skirt the edge of personal familiarity, but are perpetually threatened by alien shapes, figures, and textures.  His work evolves from an accumulation of gestures and responses to create a visual atmosphere that engages themes of the sublime, decoration, pollution, the triumph of painting, and personal memory.  Based primarily in drawing, his work includes sculpture, installation, and performance. 

He received his BFA from Tyler School of Art in 2006.  He has held solo exhibitions at Jack the Pelican Presents and WORK Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.  He work has been been included in group exhibitions including the Queens Museum of Art, Capricious Space (Brooklyn, NY), MassMOCA, and The Wassaic Project Summer Festival.  He has won fellowships from The Millay Colony, The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and The Oxbow Center.  Chris Domenick lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
