About the Artist

With an eye on culture’s periphery, Denver-based artist and filmmaker Chris Bagley melds light and color to produce dreamy op-art inspired “visual scapes.”

Bagley won the Chicago International Film Festival’s prestigious Gold Hugo for his codirecting of the 2008 documentary Wesley Willis’s Joyrides, about revered Chicago cult musician and street artist. In 2015, he was featured as one of Westword’s 100 Colorado Creatives. Bagley’s works have been shown at the Clyfford Still Museum as well as Rule Gallery, RedLine Contemporary Art Center, Pirate: Contemporary Art, The Maven Hotel, Arvada Center, Alto Gallery, Museum of Outdoor Arts, Understudy, Experience Gallery, Denver Art Museum, and Meow Wolf.

Bagley’s video work includes Fringe Art of the Front Range displayed at Denver International Airport, a Colorado Public Television short featuring Denver’s Casa Bonita, and music videos for the underground rap group Wheelchair Sports Camp.

In the art installations Interactive Infinity Loop, Moving Mona, and the World Builder series, colorful, mirror-image projections and backlit, lenticular prints are a kaleidoscopic impression of reality, bordering on the hallucinogenic.
