about the artist

Katharin Chapuis, born in Zurich Switzerland and currently residing in Boston, creates works of luminous minimalism.   According to a 2016 review in The Boston Globe,  her paintings “are more meditation object than picture. They certainly are objects: Chapuis builds up the edges of her paintings so that they have a stony texture and plenty of heft. Then, within them, she drops into sheer atmosphere: color at the edges, lightening (in her larger paintings) to near white in the center. Earth and air. There’s an uncanny sense of space here. On one hand, we might be gazing into a tunnel of light, toward something imperceptible. On the other, we seem to stand at the brink of a thick fog, through which light disperses, a mist we could almost reach out and touch.”
