Ceaphas Stubbs’s large-format photographs explore the temporality of longing and loss as altered states of embodiment. Stubbs process begins by creating sculptures from found, commonplace materials. These sculptures are then arranged in and photographed against colorful, patterned backdrops, and then dismantled. His work has been shown widely, including in exhibitions at FiveMyles Gallery, Brooklyn; Reginald Ingraham Gallery, Culver City; Czong Institute for Contemporary Art Museum, Gimpo-si; Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark; The Print Center, Philadelphia; and The Center for Photography at Woodstock, amongst others. Ceaphas Stubbs graduated from Rutgers University with a BA in Visual Arts in 2011 and went on to earn an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013. He was the recipient of a Christopher Lyon Memorial Award in 2013, and nominated for the Dedalus Foundation MFA Fellowship in the spring of 2012. Stubbs has completed residencies atSkowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture (2012), Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (2017), The Creative Captial Professional Development Program (2017), and Express Newark (2017-18).
