Biography

Doris Chase had a substantial career as a painter and sculptor before she set off for New York, where she made her ground-breaking moving image works. She began by integrating her sculptures with interactive dancers, using special effects to create dreamlike work. Her particular favorite was a pale blue, similar to the color of the sky in a summer sunset. Highly sensual, her work is fluid and stable while exploring movement in the context of abstract architecture.
