Imagine seeing NASA's photos of distant galaxies and photos from National Geographic of exotic lands and wishing you could explore all their hidden wonders. Chantal Barlow's paintings bring the magic of your dreams to life with what are both detailed and aerial views of unexplored terrain and space through her entrancing organic abstract paintings on wood and aluminum.
There's this special moment of discovery when exploring Chantal's work where you're unsure if what you're viewing is a picture of something naturally occurring in the world, and when you realize it's not, you try to understand how something so powerful could be created with human touch. The magic in Barlow's artistic breadth is in it's fluidity. The gravitation and resistance of her medium is a natural component of its chemistry and Chantal clearly has an intimate understanding of her materials, manipulating paint to move through the hills and valleys of the texture she's unearthed.
We welcome the opportunity to lose ourselves in Chantal's fluid, imaginary worlds.
