Chantal Powell creates sculptural objects and installations that explore concepts of truth, illusion and constructs of reality. With works playing up theatrical facade and illusionary twists, we are led to consider the self-fabrication and deception that occurs in our personal constructions of our realities. A PhD focusing on the social psychology of human relationships informs her practice as an artist.
