Matt Chmielarczyk is a self-taught artist/photographer living in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His body of work is a visual journal that explores many possibilities and answers to many whims. Some photographers create their images and others collect theirs. Matt collects his. His approach is an organic and malleable melding of concepts, curiosities, and technologies that ultimately become his own self-contained collaboration. Although Matt’s work is primarily derived photographically, his process occasionally expands to include works in music, sculpture, and video.
Matt's work has been exhibited in Colorado, Alaska, California and New York. His photographs have gained recognition from several reputable arts organizations, including: The Alaska Photographic Center, The Alaska State Museum, Lenscratch, LifeFramer, Sloika and The Modern Analogue.
