Painter Megan Chapman featured at Blue Moon Gallery, Hot Springs Arkansas

"Evidence of the Disappearance" an exhibit of abstract, oil and mixed media paintings by Fayetteville artist, Megan Chapman will be featured for two months beginning June 6 – July at the Blue Moon Gallery in Hot Springs, Arkansas.The gallery is located at 718 Central Avenue in the downtown Historic Arts District.

The opening reception will be held June 6th from 5-9pm, during first Friday gallery walk. The artist will be present.This exhibit includes thirty two new paintings never before exhibited.

Chapman says... When I paint I listen to music on my headphones, and the music is always a constant source of inspiration and helps me to dive into the work and away from this world; the paintings that result are the only "evidence" of this time spent "away."

"Gold seems to feature prominently in this body of work as does the diamond/ovoid shape. The shape that was once a lotus petal has now broken away to float, hover, overlap, and pulse on the diagonal in these works. A warm palette of rusts, orange oxides, the usual suspects, and my favorite deep blue tie many of the pieces together. A cool aqua brings a punch and signals the spring and the winter (hoping for the spring) in which these paintings were created. Fine lines connect some of the elements, holding and grounding them to the paintings. I see a rough, almost acidic texture in some of the diamond shapes and backgrounds. Elements bubble up and through, while surface layers hide and conceal yet still allow for a peek."
