Chandler House is a small design studio and shop located in the heart of Cape Town’s bustling CBD. The 18th century Cape Georgian building houses both the Voorkamer Gallery and the shop itself. Monthly exhibitions take place in the Voorkamer Gallery whilst the shop is filled with locally-made homeware, artisanal gifts, antiques, textiles and a wide selection of fine art.
Chandler House is the brainchild of Michael Chandler who opened the shop doors in December of 2013. What began as a platform for showcasing his designs soon grew to include other Cape artists and makers.
Following from the success of her debut exhibition last year in the Voorkamer Gallery, Erin Chaplin is back with ‘Nice for What’, an exhibition of portrait and still-life oil paintings. Visitors to the show can expect a more confident artist, evident in her decision to paint within the challenging genre of portraiture.
The striking portraits of her nearest friends and family members are complimented with a series of floral still-life works that are executed in a combination of muted tones and unexpected, electric colours. The juxtaposition of these colours creates a dynamism in the work that both shocks and soothes the viewer and hints at a new direction for Chaplin.
The show will run for the month of August in the Voorkamer Gallery at Chandler House.
