Prismatic Eye - SOLD
By Caroline Chappell
Acrylic and mixed media on linen canvas
Size: H: 46cm x W: 120cm
One of our most popular abstract landscape painters, Caroline Chappell has her light-filled studio in the heart of the North Cotswolds, the region that has been her main landscape painting inspiration over the years.
As ever, her work is characterised by a myriad of different gestural brush strokes, or marks made with other implements, and rich colour combinations. There are juxtapositions of light and dark areas and built-up layers and bands. Although thoughtfully composed, the impression is one of spontaneity and an expressive response to the scene.
Caroline has experimented with new canvas shapes - like this wide- angle slice - and a turquoise, teal and deep blue palette in this new summer 2023 series created for us: there are the typical distinctive vertical lines, horizontal slabs of vivid colour and suggestions of mass and form; but there is also some new stacking of vertical planes and blocks of colour.
Each landscape tells a story and is as much about how the viewer feels about the art as the act of creating the art itself.
The rich and warm tones would be perfect for a statement piece in a drawing room, dining room or snug. This pair of dramatic paintings could hang together and/or alongside the larger, square Refraction or Land Skipping, also on show with us this summer.
