From rural communities to strip malls and industrial factories, American Views brings together two painters who draw inspiration from the social landscape around them.
Paul M. Chapman
Paul Chapman is fascinated by the rich subject matter and sense of drama created by mills and factories. As an observer, his paintings often depict complicated surfaces and perspectives that reflect on the social, economic and environmental qualities and concerns inherent within industry and society.
Paul Chapman, born in 1943 and raised in Hudson Falls, NY, graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz and received his graduate degree from SUNY Plattsburgh. Chapman taught art at Queensbury elementary & high school from 1966-2001. Now retired, he focuses on his painting and has widely exhibited his works throughout the northeast, participating in many juried exhibitions, including the Mohawk-Hudson Regional. Chapman’s paintings have received numerous awards and inclusions in publications such as International Contemporary Artists. Chapman lives in Hudson Falls, NY.
Scott Nelson Foster
Using the landscape of rural America as his subject matter, Scott Nelson Foster focuses on absence and loss to shape his definition of beauty. Searching for the passage of time in the landscape, Foster reflects on changing ideas about the societal relationships to the land and the American experience.
Scott Nelson Foster received his first instruction in drawing and painting from his uncle and grandfather, while growing up in Boise, Idaho. Foster then went on to receive a B.A. in Fine Art from Northwest Nazarene University, and an M.F.A. in Painting and Drawing from Utah State University. His paintings have been featured in solo and juried exhibitions on the east and west coasts. He has recently completed portraits commissioned by the St. Kateri Tekakwitha Parish and the Musicians of Ma’alwyck. After teaching at Utah State University for a period, Foster relocated to upstate New York, where he paints and teaches at Siena College.
