Chip Forelli Art Prints
Master of beautifully crafted, enigmatic black and white prints where man's mysterious presence frequently hovers, Chip Forelli's personal work is represented by fine art photography galleries and is part of many private and corporate collections. Recent solo exhibitions have been at the Steinhardt Conservatory Gallery at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Mercedes Benz Gallery of New York, the Art Institute of Atlanta, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies and Hoopers Gallery in London, England. Communication Arts Photography Annual has featured his work on numerous occasions and chose one of his abstract botanical studies for a cover.
In addition to photographing purely for himself, Forelli's travels also take him on assignment where he works with prestigious advertising and corporate clients such as BMW, Land Rover, AT&T, Eastman Kodak and pro bono work for Doctors Without Borders.
Originally trained as an architect and musician, Forelli was drawn to photography because it shared with architecture and music "the demand for a fine balance between aesthetic sensibility and craft. If you alter the balance, you run the risk of either becoming overly conceptual or preoccupied with technique."
Top awards have been awarded to him from Communication Arts, Archive and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. The New York Times praised his "otherworldly lighting" and "intense compositions" noting that Forelli's images "tease perception with their ghostlike forms."
Chip lives in the Deleware Valley of Pennsylvania with his wife Gloria and three sones Jake, Cris and Ryan.
