Aleah Chapin
Maiden, Mother, Child & Crone

Overview

Chapin focuses on the exploration of the intricate relationships between a range of generations, and the vital importance of each. She also confronts social expectations and assumptions of our actions as we age - what society expects and how people react when those expectations are not met, or are challenged.

Aleah Chapin's highly anticipated new paintings will go on view for the rst time in an exhibition titled: Maiden, Mother, Child & Crone at Flowers Cork Street gallery, London. Aleah is renowned for her ongoing 'Aunties Project', which comprises gural depictions of a group of the same women she has known all her life, capturing them unashamedly nude with a playful, exaggerated and Rubenesque gural style. Her new exhibition is centred around a theme that derives from several schools of thought, but predominantly Neopaganism, where each stage in a woman's life cycle is symbolized.

Her new works therefore are multi-generational, observing the female body at differing stages of life, both as separate phases and as part of a larger and necessary whole. The questions they raise are how life affects us as we age and how life circumstances add to the aging process. They also expand on the archetypal female image to include a more complete portrayal.
