Artist Bio

Chase Westfall, (born in Albany, New York 1980) lives and works in Gainesville, Florida with his wife and children. Drawing on a broad range of philosophical, theological, and artistic influences, Westfall investigates the cultural meaning and societal function of violence. Through sometimes jarring combinations of graphic representation of torn human and animal flesh alongside geometric abstraction, his work gives equal voice to both the heat and brutality of the violent act and the cool, detached analysis to which he seeks to subject it. Though trained as a painter, Westfall’s practice encompasses a broad range of media including painting, sculpture, installation, video and performance.


Westfall received his BFA from the University of Florida in 2008, and MFA from the University of Georgia in 2011. From 2011-2013 he served as Assistant Professor of Art at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. He is currently the director of Gallery Protocol, a contemporary art gallery in Gainesville, Florida and assistant director of His work has been exhibited nationally at galleries and fairs such as Expo Chicago in 2015 with Imperfect Articles, as well as internationally in Germany and South Korea.
