Artist Bio:
Halsey Chait (b. 1978) is a New York based artist whose work synthesizes his reverence for science, graffiti, and the ancient art and wisdom of early humans. His ink drawings feature dense clusters of meditative marks that bloom outwards and develop according to the mathematical rules governing the growth processes of life forms and molecular structures. Improvising with a lexicon of primeval and scientific biomorphic symbols, the drawings weave together the repetitive gestures of music, the mutating iterations of evolution, the turbulence of swarming organisms, and the architectural networks of vibrating space. He lives and works in Brooklyn with his wife and three sons. His work is held in private collections throughout the world.

Artist Statement:
Halsey Chait's drawings act as portals to labyrinthian journeys generated from either boundary or core, each mark impacting the location of the next, a spiraling pattern of choices made that influence the choices still to come. The drawings lead the eyes to focus on the center while simultaneously expanding outwards to the circumference of growth. Each drawing is a seed of vibrating light, acting as a nucleus of future expansion, representing the light that is transmitted through generations.
