THE EPISODE PAINTINGS

“As an artist I make marks which reflect the phenomena stemming from our ancestralgut, where archetypes prosper, and memory sculpts form. My images are an interpretiveportrayal of these explosions in apocalyptic information, as I travel through the fringe where city meets suburb creating the pull & effect my work is determined by. In this way I seek the comic revelation of life in this suburban context: the way we negotiate the space surrounding us fascinates me, to the point that within these abstracts can be found the creatures of a genetic pool. similar to searching for images in clouds. In abstract terms I attempt to replicate nature, returning to an intuitive response. This concept is the inspiration for my work.”

 

Using elements of this milieu, where process forms the intuitive end result, and colours are weighted against the more subtle finer marks, Chiappin seems to be implicating a tableau of industrial degradation. Where cracks in the footpath of suburbia intermingle with shapes which seem familiar, and at the same time distant, like that of a memory which lingers in the pooling of pigment and the intricacy of marks which seem to travel the lines of the very nature of the work. An amalgamation of techniques fostered through experience in negotiating the environment in which he travels. As a mixed blood Australian he is concerned with interpreting the ritual of a lost world of passage upon this plain.
