Jim Chapman has developed a highly personal, unique style while addressing the traditional subject matter of still life and landscape painting. His palette is an inspired variation on post-impressionism color theory combined with a keen observation of the objects and natural world around him.
His enthusiasm for life and his art is obvious in his paintings and in conversation about his subjects and the creative process. Rich use of color and texture are key to all his work. Chapman’s highly regarded “fantasy farmland” series ranges from scenes inspired by the NC landscape to the farmlands and villages of Italy. His still life’s bring vibrant energy to his subjects, with great use of light, texture and depth that fill the canvas.
