ARTIST BIO

Rick Chapman’s bold visual sensibility makes it easy to see the threads connecting his portraiture and his CIRCLE, TREE, and ISOLATE series. A careful sense of design, intimacy, and texture emanate from all of Chapman’s images. His portraits explore that which ties us all together as humans, the essence of what is common to all of us. There is no formula for this. From Chapman’s perspective, the most successful portraits are the result of an intense two-way dialogue where something vital and universal is expressed and recorded. His best images reveal the energy of this rich mutual exchange. What is it that we see in his celebrity portraits that we may also see in his portrait of a drifter or a portrait of his own brother?

Composure, self-reflection and connection, no matter how brief, are all present. Humanity’s common ground is at the heart of Chapman’s portraiture.

Born in Bay Village, Ohio, Rick Chapman earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature / Photography from the University of Michigan. He has been participated in numerous shows throughout the United States and Japan. His work is also held in many U.S. collections including Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles County Museum and Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, both in California; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Texas; George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; as well as the private collection of Sir Elton John. Commercial clients include ESPN, Chevrolet, the National Football League, and ABC.
