'The Audacity Of Simplicity' is the title of a book by Timothy Boston, the phrase stuck in Chippendale's mind and he decided to see how far he could take the audacity of simplicity in his new collection of paintings whilst still maintaining a recognisable image. As usual he starts to create his latest collection with Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. It is a tradition, whether he is creating paintings for sale or not Chips experiments and perfects his technique using the same two or three subjects. My (younger) face is often the third one in the process. When he is confident that his ideas work on the canvas he starts to bring in other people, landscapes and objects. Audrey will be at The Bywell Arts Festival, in Northumberland NE43 7AD this weekend.23rd to 25th June 2017. Find more details here or on the 'Bywell Arts Festival' Facebook page. Both Chippendale and Morris will have stencil paintings exhibited this year.
