Gallery: Nature’s soul: It took me many years to be able to paint the emotion my garden brings me ,how I feel it, breathe it. To paint a flower, it is not just to paint its petals, its stamens , it is to paint the soul of the flower … I wish you a good promenade round my garden. I travel along meandering paths ranging from figurative to non-figurative depending on my mood, sometimes with the gestural strokes of Monet and Joan Mitchell and with the lyricism of Alfred Manessier, artists that I love.
Anaïs Laurent, past gallery director says:” When one speaks of a painting, the mind automatically looks for the object on a white wall. But, when speaking of the works of Mary Chaplin it is more a question of allowing the emotions to attempt to feel the elusive reality of light playing amidst shadows, of joyous, bright colors glimpsed through the deep greens of protective leaves, of breezes playing with the ephemeral vision of a summer garden. It is almost possible to smell the delicate perfume of the earth’s energy liberated from the flowers by the summer’s warmth. The artist has served as a vector, a conduit capable of capturing impressions of a moment in time that shall never be seen or felt the same way again”.
