“Write what you know”. It is a basic rule that just about anyone who has ever tried to take up the pen has heard repeated ad nauseam. While it may be cliché, the phrase has some real wisdom to it – both for writers and artists more generally. Those who know their subject in a more intimate way have a better chance of more clearly articulating their own vision. Island dweller Alexandre Chapelin’s La Table is the perfect example of this.

Made from stone encased in resin, this table resembles the cross-section of reef surrounding the artist’s home of Saint Martin, a small island just south of the British Overseas Territory of Anguilla. The table straddles the line of looking like an up-close look at the an underwater formation and a bird’s eye view of an island from miles in the air. If you have even the slightest appreciation for the clear waters of the Atlantic or well executed design, you’ll be sure to wish you had this in your living room. Prices are available on request on the artist’s social media platforms.
