The Chain Theatre, established in 2012, is a 2-story black box events venue in Long island City, NY. The Chain believes in providing a space for artists to produce work and hone their craft. With fully equipped performance spaces, a gallery space, rehearsal rooms, and reading areas, the Chain serves as a home for multidisciplinary work. The performance space can be adjusted in numerous ways to accommodate your production or event, always creating an intimate evening. It can seat anywhere from 50 to 75 patrons. The performance space measures 21’ by 36’ without seating. A fully adjustable sound and light plot that includes the use of several computers allows for even the highest of technical productions. The space allows for entrances on all four corners and there is a large dressing room equipped with mirrors and specific dressing areas. Other amenities include brand new central air conditioning and heating. There is also a large reception/gallery area with adjustable track lighting and a board to display your sponsors and actor’s headshots. All of this allows your audience to have a unique independent theatre experience!

In the SISU GALLERY:
“…I do not think exactly the way I thought yesterday. Or rather, my basic idea has not changed, but my thought has evolved, and my modes of expression have followed my thoughts.” This quote taken from Henri Matisse’s “Notes of a Painter” expresses the way in which I create. My work centers around the human condition and abstraction, but more specifically, a sense of embodiment that the figure possesses. I am interested in the fleeting moments of time that can be captured in the gesture of a body. I shape the paint on the surface of the canvas sculpturally, carving through layers, or building them up with a palette knife and brush. Instead of representing each figure clearly, I abstract them, allowing the viewer to find their own answers within each piece. There is a complex construction that the body is made up of, and it is the breaking down, simplifying, and understanding of this that drives me to continue exploring the structure that lies beneath. I am always experimenting with different processes and techniques, ranging from digital work, to traditional painting, to ceramic sculpture. This allows me to explore what works for myself and constructs no bounds for which I can create.
