Rhode Island Artist Lee Chabot Opens Exhibit Tonight in Providence
Friday, October 04, 2013
Chabot’s unique style of painting combines bold strokes with a controlled yet striking color palette recalling the rich landscapes of the Atlantic Coast, French Countryside, Rhode Island and Abstracts.
His works, sometimes complex but other times simple geometrical arrangements, possess a certain vitality and movement shaped by unique and unfettered brushwork.
Through compositions created by line and color, Chabot’s work explores the possibilities of perspective within two-dimensional space, influenced by early Cubism but also drawing from Impressionist paintings focusing on the “essence” of picture making.
Chabot paints landscapes unforgotten, from wide-open ocean vistas to busy market squares. And, while some the works are subtle and introspective; others are full of energy and motion.
Chabot Gallery will present a collection of new works by Lee Chabot, painted in oil and acrylic, completed during 2013. Chabot is a member of the Providence Art Club and owner of Chabot Fine Art Gallery.
