Biography

Connie Chappel lives in Winnipeg. She uses photography, sculptural assemblage and installation to explore correlations between the natural world, human life, inanimate objects, and the cycle of living entities. She has a particular passion for the symbiotic relationship human beings share with nature that considers past, current and future existence. Her life experiences inform her art practice. Chappel holds a BFA - 1st class honours from the University of Manitoba School of Art, Winnipeg.  Her work has been exhibited at Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts (Toronto), World of Threads Festival (Oakville, ON), Orillia Museum of Art and History (Orillia, ON), Library Gallery (Winnipeg) and Oseredok  (Winnipeg). In 2016, she was commissioned to exhibit The Mulvey, a photo installation, for Transitions: The New Biennial for Art and Architecture, Botkyrka Konsthall, Tumba, Sweden.
