Solo: William LaChance
We are thrilled to be particpating in Expo Chicago for the first time this coming September (27-30) with a solo presentation of new work by William LaChance. More information about Expo Chicago is available here (click).
William Lachance is best known for his brightly coloured figurative and abstract work. His figurative paintings explore the enveloping space behind and around isolated figures; to look beyond what is depicted and to create a unique narrative. Lachance’s abstract paintings however, flirt with the ideas that take place on the surface. The narratives still appear, however, they weave their way through abstract forms on the way to somewhere right in front of the viewer. Usually taking the form of acrylic on large-scale wooden board, LaChance’s bold shapes, vivid colours and abstract modernist compositions take inspiration from vintage graphic design and illustration.
WILLIAM LACHANCE (b. 1971, St Louis, Missouri) lives and works in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. He graduated with a BFA from The Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from Indiana University.
