Geoffrey Chadsey (b. Philadelphia, PA; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY) is a portrait artist known for his drawings of hybrid figures, which vacillate between the masculine and the feminine. His style is reminiscent of engravings, shaped with dense curves and parallel lines made with colored pencils and crayons. He also often incorporates multiple figures atop one another, creating the illusion of transparency and amalgamation of forms. These figures are in a constant state of shedding and becoming, shifting between genders, time frames and sometimes species. Inspired in part by his personal Internet search history in which he examines men performing for digital audiences, he portrays these individuals enacting stereotypical poses while also expressing anxiety and self-doubt. geoffreychadsey.com
