London-based painter Clare Chapman produces work that finds beguiling beauty in the dark and disturbing. Some of her subjects resemble the pus-filled pods or cocoons from which aliens and other horror film staples burst forth, others are more abstract, uncertain outlines in fleshy colours that unnerve without us quite knowing why. The ever-brilliant Brighten The Corners have just redesigned Clare’s website and by keeping the navigation nicely simple they have done a tremendous job at letting us viewers chart and enjoy Clare’s evolution as an artist over the past few years.
Cœur fidèle (The Faithful Heart) by Jean Epstein, 1923
“In water, crystals grow, beautiful as Venus, born as she was, full of the most secret graces, symmetries and correspondences. Games of Heavens, thus, worlds fall — from where? Into a light space.”
