In his animation-based practice, Chris Doyle explores aspiration and progress, questioning the foundation of a culture consumed by striving. His narratives feature a world of increasing speed and complexity where a spirit of exuberant creation exists in tension with the possibility of a looming apocalypse.
He has exhibited widely at venues in the U.S. and internationally. His temporary and permanent urban projects include commissions for the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo, Bosnia, the U.S. Ambassador's residence in Stockholm, Sweden; within the U.S., he has received commissions from Culver City, California; Kansas City, Missouri; Louisville, Kentucky; Austin, Texas; and Times Square in New York City. He is the recipient of a 2014 John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and the 2014 Borusan Contemporary Art Collection Prize. His work has also been supported by grants from the Creative Capital Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, NYSCA, and the MAP Fund.
