Natalie Chapman

Natalie paints portraits that engage with family identity and issues based around dysfunctional realtionships and social documentary. She is influenced by the work of photographers Richard Billingham and Nan Goldman.

Natalie says that “I want my work to feel edgy and to seduce the viewer into contemplating ambigious tension, a sense of emptiness, boredom and anxiety.”

Her process involves capturing memories using small collages of family portraits with interior scenes recalled from childhood.  These studies are scaled up on large canvases to create presence and intensify personal stories using gritty expression and garish colour.  She creates images about human relationships that are similtaneously tender and syfunctional.  We hope you enjoy her work.
