③ Artist:

Andrew Chapman

Chapman’s paintings and mixed-media works explore abstraction, texture and unusual forms. The artist distorts the surfaces of his compositions to create optical illusions and otherworldly arrangements. Chapman’s formal compositions achieve a visceral immediacy through his use of atypical materials, unexpected scales and suggestive colors—as well as a sensibility that encompasses the strangeness of organic bodies in a highly mediated world.
