It is a glorying in color and line a veritable feast that awaits the eyes of those who see his 68 works. Chapin revealed in pigment viewing the world through a spectroscopic prism of color which he saw fractured into a nearly never repeating palette of secondary colors so Brilliant and alive and flippant that his work is transcendental. Equate him with Dylan Thomas or the younger american poet David Waggoner whose images Tumble Forth in a Cascade of Novelty Ever new never trite exciting and vibrant.

Yang Jianu a inherited Middle Eastern propensity for Loving Sun energized golds reds and oranges. He did no to View the places he painted with anything except a worshipful divine a flatus produced by a Whitman esque wonder in the world about him and procured by a constancy of style which was rightly satisfied with itself because of its very self. But there is nothing smug about Chapins style. It is direct and simple and honest what Laurence Perrine be scribes As the poetic a significant experience caught up in his own zest for life and captured by his gift. His imagination permits the viewer to imagine yet he controls his medium and inspires the colors. His subjects appear skel tally yet they Are Complete for he found the mood of what he saw and translated it into hard sure terse lines and colors which seem to excite even the Canvas. There is a promising balance Between his discovery of the True line of things and his disregard for opacity and line plies line to compile an effect which is i aesthetically spiritual a equilibrium which functions.

I done to feel that oils like him or he them. His lithographs especially a circus Parade and a soda Fountain a betray his sense of humor and color color in a punish Way for the figures who people these prints Are quite comic. So with Chaj it in there is color even in Black and White. But his oils Are awkward except where he uses them dry As in a water in a afraid i feel the same about a self portrait a but i cannot test my evaluation Here since this piece of work is not for Sale.

Taken after Albright Chapin is a soothing antidote for Albright a sometime indictment taken before he serves to line the stomach against the few acid Albright prints. Its a Good arrangement of contrasts and is Only too bad that these two shows could not show longer together As a kind of Sweet and sour dressing for two distinctly differing views of the world.
