Read the review in aether magazine by Elizabeth Tigar here.

"The vivid colors of the paintings will make you think Fauvism ran headlong into Realism and they decided to hook up for a while; which, if you're anything like your reporter, will guarantee your presence in the gallery to enjoy these exquisitely detailed portraits and landscapes by Elizabeth Chapin."

-Wayne Allen Brenner, The Austin Chronicle, October 2nd, 2014

 

A native of Mississippi, Chapin’s portraits are infused with a sense of Southern nostalgia and spill over with character. Unexpected color and bold patterns come together to quite literally create the picture of a person. Like the work of Alice Neel, her use of the direct gaze and a loose but expressive line is captivating. All at once playful, serious and amorous, Chapin’s portraits are not to be missed.

Chapin was trained at Parsons School of Design, Cleveland Institute of Art and The University of Virginia. This is her first solo show in Austin, Texas where she resides with her husband and two children.
