Aleah Chapin — The Aunties Project
Posted on January 21, 2013
Aleah Chapin explores her personal history through paint.
“I paint the people that I know in a landscape of filtered memory”. The subjects in Aleah Chapin’s current series are women that she has known since birth. Titled The Aunties Project, this work “examines my personal history through the people who have shaped it. On our bodies is left a map of our journey through life. The process of painting these women allows me a glimpse of that journey and brings me into the present moment of our shared history.”
