Opening Reception Tuesday, October 28, 2014
The unusual landscapes painted in Rebecca Chaperon’s Eccentric Gardens are imagined physical spaces brimming with creative energy. They represent the inner “places” we access for creativity and imagination, places that exist within our larger internal/personal landscape.
In the Eccentric Gardens exhibition at Initial Gallery we see new sculptures and paintings from Chaperon that reveal the artist’s nostalgia for place crystallized. These Eccentric Gardens are living symbols for this perpetual internal place that is the wellspring of creativity and imagination.
Chaperon’s work often presents a surreal version of the world, places that waver just outside of our perception. This time Chaperon’s exploration of place has led to a gentle introversion – to depict a place that is her creative origin.
