Harry Chandler
Los Angeles, CA

Chandler, who prior to his career as an artist worked both as a film producer and an Internet executive, references his past. His work draws upon experiences casting actresses and models in Hollywood and consulting for a prominent dating website. Using life-sized mannequins, silicone breast forms, video, and photography, he reflects on the constructs of desire untethered by an authentic romantic connection. Creative, manipulative, desperate, hopeful and, at times, toxic, the masculine is laid bare. The feminine is shown to be both a victim and an equal sparring partner, struggling to fully command her own body and power.
