Chantal Westby creates works of art that not only speak of her own memories but also encourage the spectator to investigate their own. The artist attributes her vision to her desire to encourage a visual dialogue between the spectator and herself. She accomplishes this task through her large-scale acrylic and multimedia paintings. Her compositions elevate recognizable forms and subjects to an abstract level, stripping them of their tangible boundaries and allowing them to exist in their most organic state.
Westby furthers this abstract quality by altering the perspective, often presenting her depicted scenes in a di sotto in sù style. In doing so, she creates a field of depth that allows the spectator to look up into the compositions toward illusionistic upper thresholds, intensifying the emotions captured on the canvas support.

Born in France, Westby migrated to the United States in the 1980s and has actively painted in Pennsylvania since her arrival. She studies at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia and Main Line Art Center in Haverford, PA.
