Lee Chapman

Comara Gallery

Lee Chapman’s work consists of humorous figure paintings in oil glazes over a lightly textured gesso surface, which is already beginning to crack. The subject matter in Mr. Chapman’s painting deals with current, popular images in taste and fashion as well as contemporary variations on such themes as the Pope. In most cases the paintings become like large posters patterned after comic greeting cards.
