MARIE-DOLMA CHOPHEL born in 1984, Châtenay-Malabry, France who currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received Master’s Degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris (ENSBA), France in 2008. In 2014, Chophel was awarded a residency and fellowship from the Sam and Adele Golden Foundation. Her works has been exhibited in galleries and museums, including solo show at Equity Gallery, and group exhibitions at Berkeley Museum, W.Ming Art at Walter Arader Gallery, SAGG Gallery, CU Art Museum, Queens Museum, Rossi & Rossi Gallery in Hong Kong and London, Fleming Museum, and Samuel Dorsky Museum.
Chophel drew inspiration from cosmology, natural sciences, the effects of technology on our condition and Tibetan heritage. Her painting incorporated graphic elements, geometric shapes and 3D grids, which depicts abstract and fragmented spaces to give the viewer an immersive visual experience. Meanwhile, the tension between chaos and control and the expression of natural forces and the weight of their emotional impact in her works are also profoundly reflected.

I make paintings that map abstract, fragmented spaces and explore the tension between chaos and control, the expression of natural forces and the weight of their emotional impact. Cosmology, natural sciences, the effects of technology on our condition as well as my Tibetan heritage are powerful inspirations for me.
One concern integral to my practice, is how to push a language of abstraction in order to create immersive visual experiences and invoke a sense of movement and impermanence.
Today we know a world which is entirely pictured and mapped. Technologies allow us immediate access to vast multitudes of information, images and ways to connect with others. Its effects etch new cartographic features to our experience, creating worlds on top of worlds where we never really know who we are, where we are located, or where we are going.
For the past 6 years, I have taken an increasing interest in how these forces impact our perception of the world and our place in it. I began to integrate graphic elements and 3D grids into my process to create more complex abstracted spaces where organized constellations of lines or topographic meshes interact with fluid organic forms and colors, undergoing mutations.
As the layers of paint and lines create - or destroy - worlds, painting is a dedication of time to space. With each painting, I engage new narratives of ever-evolving mind’s inner geography where I can impede the flow of time which seems otherwise accelerated and compressed.
