Launch - Paintings by Stacie Chappell
                   June 4th- June 30th 2015

Opening Reception, June 4th 5-9 PM
Artist Talk at the Gallery, June 20th, 2015 1-3 PM

Stacie Chappell’s vibrant paintings suggest movement and transition of form within spatial abstract landscapes. Drawing from the history of Abstract Expressionism and Formalist painting she layers each canvas with different application techniques; pouring and dying the canvas to doodling with markers or using handmade and manufactured stencils with acrylic spray. The artist say’s, “For me, my work has become much more complicated over the years as I continue to build upon a number of techniques, I want to include them all in the final piece.” While the artist draws upon intuition and memory for her work, Launch displays several new works inspired from snorkeling at the live reef in the Florida Keys this year.

Current representation includes Gallery IMA, in Seattle Washington, with past exhibitions and collections in; Portland,
Seattle, Kansas City, Missouri, and Boise, Idaho.

Stacie is Adjunct Faculty in the Art Department and Boise State University and Lake Washington Institute of Technology in Kirkland, WA.
