Carl Chaiet of Sharon, Conn., is a sculptor and a painter and, in many ways, a comic. Those three artistic disciplines come together in his new work, a whimsical recreation of an iconic chair featured in Vincent Van Gogh’s painting, “The Bedroom.”
Chaiet has taken the chair from the room and created a silhouette of it on birch wood that is then gessoed and painted so it seems to pop out from its background.
“Prop it in a corner,” the artist suggests. “Hang it on a wall!”
“The Vincent Chair” is now being sold with a portion of the profits from each sale going to The Lakeville Journal’s ongoing contribution campaign. The cost to purchase the work is $145; The Lakeville Journal receives $25 of each sale.
“The Vincent Chair” is a limited edition of 50. It is 39 inches tall and 19 inches wide and weighs 2 pounds. It comes with hardware and is ready to hang (if you choose not to prop it in the corner).
For information or to order a chair, contact Chaiet at 860-364-5618 or send an email to email@example.com. Chaiet will deliver to residents of the Tri-state region for a fee or help organize shipping to more distant locations.
