George Chaplin

“I see color as light and atmosphere and celebrate it for its emotional impact and beauty. The changeable nature of color, both intrinsically and from external conditions, fascinates me, and I am particularly involved in how it can appear to alternately expand and contract.” As a color field painter, George Edwin Chaplin blurs not only foreground and background but the colors themselves, creating tension and vibration. “Although he runs through the spectrum of what we usually think of as warm and cool colors, none of Chaplin’s colors are really cool…The color fills the room, vibrates, and seems to fluctuate as if moved by currents of air.”
