Cynthia Chapman employs a wide spectrum of colours in her abstract paintings, alternating between bold expressionism and softer, calmer palettes. Chapman layers her compositions with a thick impasto, treading heavily along the horizon, which weaves in and out of their strategically placed blocks of colour.
Chapman is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design. In 2000 she was awarded the Solomon Painting Award. Upon her graduation in 2003, she received the Mrs. W.O. Forsyth Award.
In 2003 she joined the stable of artists at the prestigious Ron Moore Gallery located in downtown Toronto. Chapman’s solo shows at Moore Gallery were very successful. Her most notable commissions include a series of large works done for the renowned Hazelton Hotel in Yorkville.
Chapman’s paintings can be found in numerous private and corporate collections across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East.
