Mary Chaplin, Through the mist of my memory. The garden where I lived as a child is still very alive in my memory. When winter is too dreary, I like thinking of this place I loved so much. This painting is made with high quality acrylic paint on linen canvas, 2cm depth. Not framed but ready to be hung. Additional Information:- Size: H:100 cm x W:100 cm Mary Chaplin is a French artist and lives and works in Cany-Barville, Nomandy. In a picturesque market town near the famous Etretat, birth place of Impressionism. Mary Chaplin for more than twenty years has worked as a self-taught professional artist, always inspired by nature and by the varying effects of light. Mary Chaplin is an AKOUN rated artist. She started her career by painting figurative scenes she saw around her in the French countryside. Her first artworks were representations of landscapes, gardens, forests, rivers or lakes, which allowed her to explore different techniques, including pastel, oil, acrylic and watercolor. However, both her life and career reached a turning point in 2005 when she witnessed the ‘holy light’ in a chapel she was visiting; she was deeply touched and inspired by the beauty of the reflections coming from the stained-glass windows, and thus she started painting them, calling them her ‘reflections’, or, in French, ‘méditations’. After that experience in the chapel, her will to convey the ephemeral nature of the light she captures, and its soothing warmth, became stronger. This new artistic birth enabled her to follow new paths in which she explores light’s numerous and ever changing facets. This deeply influenced her artistic style and work as it gave them a new dimension, shifting from a figurative representation of light in landscapes and still life to an abstract and more personal and metaphorical interpretation and appropriation of light’s fugacity. The artist’s work spans impressionism to abstraction: Hints of Monet and a sprinkling of Joan Mitchell. But over the years she has built her own distinctive style. Since her beginnings, artist and painter Mary Chaplin’s work has been published in several article in the press and in specialized art magazines. It also has been broadcasted on television and is regularly exhibited in festivals dedicated to sacred art as well as in art galleries throughout different countries, including France, Belgium and England.
