Paul Chiappe - Untitled 51.2, 2014 Pencil on Card 5 x 6.6cm
CARSLAW St* Lukes is delighted to announce that Paul Chiappe's first solo show in New York will open this Thursday, 12th June at Josee Bienvenu Gallery, 529 West 20th Street, (between 10th & 11th Avenues). New York, NY 10011
Chiappe's new body of work stems from an interest in religious imagery and questions the relationship between adults and children in the Catholic faith. They are also a reflection on some of the peculiarities and difficulties within Catholicism and religion in general. Photographs sourced from Google are the starting point, depicting individuals participating in the Catholic faith. The final drawings are, to varying degrees, reworked fictional versions.
