Flowers Gallery 529 West 20th Street, New York, NY
Flowers Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Aleah Chapin, focusing on the unified depiction of the human body and the natural environment. In her latest work, Chapin describes a world concerned with ‘in-betweenness and edges’ - from the juxtaposition of soft human flesh against the hard contours of cliffs and rockfaces, to the symbolic representation of emotional edges and extremes.

The human figure has been depicted by artists for centuries and is still a constant source of inspiration. Artists have represented the male and female body as a symbol, used its forms and shapes to explore power and movement, presented it to show allegories from mythology or simply celebrated the human body for its beauty, elegance or eroticism. Drawn from The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art, featured artists include Henry Moore, Jacob Epstein, Eduardo Paolozzi, Elisabeth Frink, Ralph Brown, Allen Jones, Reg Butler, Anthony Green and Aleah Chapin.
