2020 Studio visit by DATEAGLE ART. Word and photography by Anna Souter



Diane Chappalley (Born in 1991, in Switzerland, lives and works in London) creates figurative landscapes in oil paint as well as ceramic sculptures that draw on transitional experiences of death and birth, loss and love, trauma and resilience. She addresses themes that are both personal and inherently universal. 

In her large canvases, among vast washes of colours that suggest both soil and skin tones, the human figures are still - as if they are carved from stone; statues lost in time. Surrounded by anxious flowers as markers of ritual, her work is deeply spiritual and psychological. 

It reflects on our primal emotions, our capacity for rebirth, and our relationship with the natural world.
