About the artist
Drie Chapek's work entices the viewer with a complicated harmony of color, shape, and texture. She calls upon intuitive gestures and natural images to convey the beauty in natural life cycles. Ambiguities of space and scale and the relationship between the micro and the macro are important aspects of her
work. Her surfaces are poured on, built up and torn down-aggressive textured layers in one moment become gently coaxed brush strokes the next. She creates a web of imagery drawn from such varied sources as aquatic life, the human body, fruit and landscape.

Drie's work comes from an honest personal calling and appeals to those who also connect with art on intimate and intuitive levels. Drie received her BA from the University of Kansas. She currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
