Residing in the Pacific Northwest, Aleah Chapin’s paintings come to feel like a reflection of the exclusive landscape. The way the blues blend with the greens, the way the waterways join to the land Seattle and the surrounding terrain… there is nothing at all like it on Earth. And that is the form of balance, both of those figurative and abstract, that Chapin is painting. But someplace in that landscape is a painter who paints flesh with these types of vivid accuracy, virtually hyperreal, in which you can’t inform if the figures are about to wander off the canvas. Blend that with her series of abstract and bold brush stroke surrealistic visions in her new works, Chapin is a exceptional and evolving learn.
On this episode of the Radio Juxtapoz podcast, Chapin talks about her motivation to be a mirror to both of those her emotions and the occasions we are living in, the sort of artist with the motivation to provide to the surface her internal self and emotions. Earlier in 2022, her solo present in Hong Kong at Flowers Gallery, the gallery famous that the “renowned (painter is knownO for her unflinching nude portraits of older gals, kin, and mates.” Or, as Eric Fischl has place it, she is “the very best and most disturbing painter of flesh alive nowadays.” Higher praise, and let’s start off listed here.
