Biography

ALEAH CHAPIN (b 1986)

Aleah Chapin grew up on an island north of Seattle and has been painting since she was a child. She received her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in 2009 and her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2012. Chapin attended a residency at the Leipzig International Art Programme in Germany and has exhibited her work in the US, the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. She has been the recipient of several awards including the Posey Foundation Scholarship, Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant, and a Postgraduate Fellowship from the New York Academy of Art. In 2012 she won the BP Portrait Award from the National Portrait Gallery in London.

The subjects in Chapin's series The Aunties Project are women that she has known since birth. The artist says this work "examines my personal history through the people who have shaped it. On our bodies is left a map of our journey through life. The process of painting these women allowed me a glimpse of that journey and brought me into the present moment of our shared history."
