Сaleb Сharland grew up in Maine and still works from there. He graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art in 2004 and credits children’s books of science experiments for his inspiration!

“Demonstrations” combines my scientific curiosity with a constructive approach to making pictures. I utilize everyday objects and fundamental forces to illustrate my own experiences with wonder. Each piece begins with a simple question (How would this look? Is that possible? What would happen if…) and develops through a process of experimentation. By establishing physical parameters first, I discover each idea’s visual potential. This allows the natural properties of the subject matter to inform my aesthetic decisions as I construct these arenas to reveal the phenomena.
