New York City’s The Hole Gallery partnered up with ICA Miami to launch a 3D walkthrough of major new works by Jonathan Chapline. Titled “Plein Air,” the presentation features new site-specific sculptures and paintings displayed in the open-air parking lot by Herzog and de Meuron at 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach.

The Brooklyn-based artist uses 3D programs to sketch out and render artworks in vivid geometric forms. Using software, Chapline arranges slabs in space and pulls them out into thickness and volume to create human subjects with Cubist-looking appearances,. He then synthesizes these digital sketches by carefully painting each image in acrylic and flashe on panel. Flashe is a vinyl-band paint invented in the ‘50s that has an opaque and velvety matte feel to the surface.

Chapline’s references for his creations are diverse. Oftentimes, the artist culls inspirations from ancient Greece to the European art movements of the 1920s and beyond. Take, for example, his series of Standing Bather sculptures made in collaboration with Case Studyo back in May. The project encompassed editions that portrayed abstract portrayals of feminine bathers observed throughout Western art history.

Check out installation views for Chapline’s “Plein Air” exhibition above and then head to The Hole’s website to take the 3D walkthrough.

Elsewhere in art, The Skateroom launched new skateboard editions featuring Andy Warhol’s famous ‘Skulls’ series.
