Chabot Fine Art Gallery is pleased to present “A Visual Narrative” — a collection of new paintings by Rhode Island artist Lee Chabot.
Chabot’s unique style of painting combines bold strokes with a controlled yet striking color palette recalling the rich landscapes of the Atlantic Coast, French Countryside, Rhode Island and Abstracts.
His works, sometimes complex but other times simple geometrical arrangements, possess a certain vitality and movement shaped by unique and unfettered brushwork.
Through compositions created by line and color, Chabot’s work explores the possibilities of perspective within two-dimensional space, influenced by early Cubism but also drawing from Impressionist paintings focusing on the “essence” of picture making.
Chabot paints landscapes unforgotten, from wide-open ocean vistas to busy market squares. And, while some the works are subtle and introspective; others are full of energy and motion.
Chabot Gallery will present a collection of new works by Lee Chabot painted in oil and acrylic, completed during 2013.
About Lee Chabot
Lee Chabot was born in Pawtucket, R.I. and presently resides in Glocester, R.I. Chabot realized by the age of 12 that he had a natural ability to comprehend perspective, light, and the principles of color, and expressed this ability through drawing and painting. A graduate of the Art Institute of Boston he studied under the renowned Phillip Hicken and is influenced by J.M.W. Turner, Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh. Chabot was a co-founder of the Art Institute of Rhode Island, which offered fine art and commercial courses to children, youth and adults.

Chabot’s works can be found in numerous private collections around the world. His work has been reviewed in: American Art Collector Magazine, Artscope Magazine, Art is Spectrum and in International publications.
Chabot’s styles range from realistic, semi-abstract to abstract expressionism. He feels strongly that composition
is the most important aspect in the successful achievement of any painting.
