Chuck Moffit tears down masculine forms and rebuilds them. He works in a light-filled Modernist studio hidden behind a boulder in the woods of Mount Baldy, California.
Inspired in equal parts by the rugged tactility of artist Richard Serra and the transgressive purposefulness of fashion designer Hussein Chalayan, Moffit’s designs challenge conventional assumptions of gender, history, and materials.
Moffit's practice keenly rides the contemporary design and sculpture divide. His work has been in exhibitions throughout Los Angeles including: Hammer Museum, Christopher Grimes Gallery, Blackman Cruz, Eric Buterbaugh Gallery, and the Torrance Museum of Art. He has collaborated on site-specific installations for High Desert Test Sites, organized by artist Andrea Zittel.
Moffit received his MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2000, and an Arts/Industry residency at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin in 2005. His work has been celebrated in such publications as Architectural Digest and T Magazine.
