Rather than simply replicating studied images, Bernard Chaet masterfully reconfigures them. His resolute approach to painting new ideas- rather than, in his own words, "just pictures of nature"- has, for more than 65 years, produced a body of vibrant oil paintings that alters the way one is invited to see the land along the sea, the water within and sky above; he re-conceives simple forms like the rocks and boulders studding the shoreline as objects of coruscating beauty in a manner previously thought possible only with precious jewels.
