NEW to Open Up!

Lynne Chapman

I create abstract paintings, in acrylics, on canvas and paper, as well as fine art textiles: sometimes 2D, sometimes sculptural. I love colour and texture.

I’ve been a full-time, professional artist for 35 years, for much of that time as an illustrator (and have 30 published picture books) but, for 6 years now, I’ve concentrated on my personal, fine art practice. I am passionate about drawing and mark-making and this underpins my textiles work as well as my paintings.

When I discovered that I suffer from aphantasia – an inability to visualise memories – I realised all my work is rooted entirely in the continuous present. With my visual life dissolving behind me, I’ve become fascinated by the relationship between my unseen subconscious and my artwork. I create instinctively, without reference. I paint quickly, impulsively. It’s only when I am hand-stitching or building textiles, that I allow the meditative nature of the process to slow me down. All my work is organic and unplanned, moving forwards with a combination of impulse, judgement and imposed randomness.
