Chaplin is a rising star in the art world, with a promising career ahead of her. Chaplin’s works show a keen eye for colour, and a fine knowledge of form and mood. Nature takes a prize place in much of the artist’s work, as well as still-life and portraiture – all styles of painting that she takes to well.
Her first solo show, Outgrowth, at Chandler’s House Voorkamer Gallery showed a maturity and skill that belies the fact she is mainly a self-taught artist with no formal training. More recently, her work has been on exhibit at the same gallery in a group show entitled ‘Rain Dance’.
Oil painting continues to enjoy a contemporary revamp, once again being viewed as an exciting and experimental medium, and it’s largely due to the work of young artists such as Erin Chaplin.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row_content”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More BAYEZA18 Nominees” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” use_theme_fonts=”yes” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2F10and5.com%2Fbayeza18%2F|||”][vc_basic_grid post_type=”post” max_items=”4″ style=”load-more” items_per_page=”8″ element_width=”3″ gap=”2″ orderby=”rand” item=”648″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1534052213601-713673e1-65ee-6″ taxonomies=”32510″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/JPmWhXJ9z18″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
