Chambliss Giobbis’s Fractured Figurative Collages

by Jane KenoyerPosted on


Chambliss Giobbi currently lives and works in New York City. Giobbi creates figurative collages using hundreds of photographs per portrait which he deconstructs by tearing into fragments, then reassembles into a collage that is fractured and has multiple vanishing points. Giobbi’s collage process is extensive and time consuming, he only works with models that he has known for a long time. After reassembling these physically mutated images he then spreads a layer of beeswax over the work. He has been the recipient of Guggenheim, NEA and NYFA fellowships.
