Chad Erpelding’s work investigates global networks by looking at international business organizations, political systems, urban/suburban development, and personal experiences. Through researching the detailed ways various groups view and experience the world, Erpelding creates visually complex and conceptually disorienting pieces. "I am interested in the physical and mental connections between locations and the effect this has on our perceptions of place." (Erpelding)

Merge is a combination of two pieces. "20 Miles" weaves together hundreds of strips of muslin, each painted to resemble a highway. "G8" is a video animation that investigates the Group of Eight through images of the member countries and their leaders. Viewed together, the pieces look at both physical and political constructs and the resulting blurring of boundaries and place.

Chad Erpelding received his MFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in 2006 and is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.
