Following his exhibition at Tokyo’s NANZUKA gallery, Brooklyn-based artist Jonathan Chapline now teams up with editions specialist Case Studyo for a collaborative series of sculptures entitled Supporting Figures. The striking new collaboration features two metal variants of the artist’s abstract-meets-figurative subjects that are largely informed by the works of old masters such as Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907) cubist painting.

One piece features a powder coat of Telemagenta while the other version is covered with an Ultramarine hue. What’s more, these collectible art objects are beyond decorative as they also function as book holders. Each sculpture stands 30 centimeters tall and arrives in a signed and numbered edition of 25 with five artist proofs. Housing all of the sculptures is custom made, screen-printed wooden box.

Check out both Supporting Figures above and visit Case Studyo’s website to learn more. The sculptures are available in select stockists worldwide.

We’re psyched to announce “Supporting Figures” our latest edition and second collaboration with @jchapline Chapline’s unique aesthetic blurs the lines between an intangible digital realm and the reality of the analogue world, finding poetry in the contrast. When working with Case Studyo, Jonathan avidly seizes the opportunity of introducing his fantastical, otherworldly universe into the microcosm of our homes. For this edition, Chapline further explores a beloved, recurring theme in his work; the human form. By deconstructing his subjects into abstract flat shapes and reassembling them to compose new volumes, the artist manages to evoke the surreal experience of existential passion harnessed in digital form. A deliberate and bold choice of materials emphasises the inherent contradiction in his work; infusing cold steel with raw emotion. The edition consists of 2 metal figures carefully welded and powder coated in Telemagenta and Ultramarine with a silky smooth satin finish. Standalone sculptures or utility objects, these ‘Supporting Figures’ are ready to be welcomed into your home. Each sculpture stands 30cm/12inch tall and comes in an edition of 25 each.
