It’s the vague familiarity of her shiny, fleshy subjects that make British artist Clare Chapman‘s paintings so compelling. Not quite abstract, but not entirely tangible, they seem unsettlingly biological, like disease-induced blisters, insect eggs or alien pods about to burst. Simply looking at them is enough to make you feel warm and sticky. Monstrous, disturbing, yet oh-so-beautiful. See more on her website— we especially love Calcerous, Creeper and Gleam.
