  Artist Statement
Macy Chadwick publishes artist’s books and limited-edition prints under the imprint In Cahoots Press in Oakland, California. In her art practice, Macy strives to reveal that which is unspoken: to make tangible the ephemeral, to make visual our human experience and interactions. To this end, she often engages metaphor in her work. For example, comparing breathing to the creative process in a limited edition artist book, employing infographics to relay an intimate dialogue in an installation, or creating a fictitious geographic terrain of emotional experience in a series of prints.

Macy Chadwick received an MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and assisted book artist Julie Chen at Flying Fish Press for three years. She currently resides in Oakland, California, where she creates books and limited edition prints in her letterpress studio. Macy is on the faculty at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, and her work is in prominent collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Yale University Special Collections, and the Jack Ginsberg Collection in South Africa.
