Jonathan Chapline’s paintings explore the world around us as mediated through a highly stylized perspective: one that feels quite ironically both retro and 'futuristic'. With a discernible amount of kitsch and personality, Chapline constructs still life paintings in the typical constructed fashion favored by the Dutch Masters. However, Chapline's feat is imbuing this conventional formula with a wild flair similar to 1980's neon-adventists: a type of 'Max Headroom' hyperreality; like a conjectured supposition of what virtual-reality would feel like...if made twenty years ago. As a result, the works tend to harbour both a cold detachment, but also a warm-sense of nostalgia. Combined with a semiotic 'breakdown', the paintings are now 24-bit scenarios reminiscent of both cell phone screens and film noir sets. Each piece elegantly uses shadows and thoughtfully paired shades, so that they appear three dimensional, as though jumping out of the canvas. Chapline's recent installation-based presentation, complete with sculptures that seem pulled directly from his paintings, accentuate this blurring of (sur)reality.
