At times images possess fluctuating properties as luminous fragmentary forms rest upon and shift amidst glowing, split -fountain-like backdrops. They are of course photographic, but are also constructions, and modern in that they break with illusionism. Drawn to making things with spaciousness and serenity, Chiles’ new images embrace open spaces, similar to those seen in Japanese stylistic tradition. – Erin Keever
