Craig Kalpakjian is an artist working in New York. From his early sculpture and installations through his seminal computer generated images and videos he has consistently addressed issues of technology, surveillance, architecture, and social control. Recent abstract works continue his explorations of spatial visualization. Using non-standard types of perspective, these large-scale inkjet prints present illusions of dimensionality that trouble the distinctions between inside and outside, artifice and reality.
He has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe. Recent exhibits including his work have been: Artists’ Choice: An Expanded Field of Photography at Mass MoCA, Vertigo at Joe Sheftel Gallery in New York, The Optical Unconscious at The Gebert Institute in Switzerland, Drone-the Automated Image in Montreal, After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Entertainment at Greene Naftali Gallery in New York, and The Evryali Score at David Zwirner Gallery in New York.
His work is included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris and was also recently featured in Blind Spot Magazine.
