Aleah is renowned for her ongoing ‘Aunties Project’, which comprises figural depictions of a group of the same women she has known all her life, capturing them unashamedly nude with a playful, exaggerated and Rubenesque figural style. Her new exhibition is centred around a theme that derives from several schools of thought, but predominantly Neopaganism, where each stage in a woman’s life cycle is symbolized. Her new works therefore are multi-generational, observing the female body at differing stages of life, both as separate phases and as part of a larger and necessary whole.

Flowers Gallery invited us to the opening reception of Aunties Project, the new series of paintings by American artist Aleah Chapin. The New York based artist presents a new collection of works that explores the connection between the people she grow up with, the flesh of the human body and subtle idealistic landscapes.
