Chantal New is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Victoria, BC. Her expanded drawing practice takes form across sculptural installation, collage, photography, and the re-contextualizing of found objects. The diverse approaches are utilised to address issues ranging from the political to the aesthetic. Her most recent body of work is an inquiry into the powerful and complex nature of controlled visuality leveraged in systems of separation and punishment. Using both a representational and conceptual approach, the work reflects Chantal’s efforts to find meaning in a dramatically changing and unstable world. She has a BA in Art and Design and recently completed an MFA at West Dean College in the UK. Her work has been exhibited across the UK and Canada.
