Stacie Chappell: Even Though I Walk

Gallery I M A, Seattle, WA - Mar 4 – 21

by Matthew Kangas

Currently an art instructor at Boise State University, in Idaho, Stacie Chappell continues her aggressively stroked, gestural paintings for her second solo exhibition at IMA since 2012. Vigorously colorful, with meandering forms and restless compositions, the pictures mix oil, acrylic, fabric dye and inks. Working on a “purely instinctual” level, Chappell calls them “abstract landscapes,” with no horizon line, vista or deep space visible.
