Working in varied media, Cecelia Chapman attempts to reveal the use of image and power within existing narratives.  She researches her projects extensively, often collaborates, and works in series. 

In the 2016 video Drone Drama: Music for the Dead with Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt, she records the epic social upheaval in San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon Valley revealing the decades long, hidden source of disruption.  In Club Paradise 2018 with Jeff Crouch, they direct attention to the world’s fastest growing business, vacation industry and tourism, that threatens Cape Cod and Islands, world ecology and consciousness. Chapman has produced dozens of videos in series since 2008 with sound artists she meets online, chance meetings and friends.  She works in drawing and experiments in visual language and abstract writing and continues to add to her ‘ikondictionary.’


Chapman is a Parsons NY graphic design graduate, born in San Francisco, currently living and working in Cape Cod.
