Jonathan Chapline

Jonathan Chapline incorporates analog and digital processes into his painting practice as he blurs the division between the real world and the virtual realm. The Brooklyn-based artist uses 3D-imaging software to recreate his own photographs and old magazine pictures, then replicates the images on canvas with acrylic and vinyl paints. His uncanny compositions, which resemble architectural renderings, feature blocky bodies and midcentury interiors shaded with bold blues, reds, purples, and pinks. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Chapline's work belongs in the collections of the X Museum in Beijing and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami. The artist has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Basel, and London, among other cities. In addition to his paintings, Chapline also creates bright sculptures that feel plucked from the virtual world.
