More than Minimal

A Virtual Exhibition


More than Minimal  is part of a group exhibition with the Artist Project. The included works are an ongoing study of paintings which explore various forms of containment and reflections of our physical self and mind.

"Paper, by virtue of its intended function, has a relationship with the human need to communicate with others, to direct emotion, thoughts, values and knowledge. With or without obvious markings upon its surface, crumpled and discarded or particularly arranged, there is an understanding that a piece of paper has been created and influenced in content, form and gesture by its previous handler. Paper is made for our manipulation, and my work explores this relationship."

The Containment Series

The pieces included in this exhibition have been created between January and May of 2021. Many of the ideas for these paintings have been in Chambers' sketchbook for over two years and are finally allowed to live, fully developed, on canvas. In January 2020,  the first version from the Containment series was painted. Although Chambers feel strongly that art should speak directly to the viewer without the artist interjecting their intentions, she feels it particularly relevant to explain that these paintings originated in pre-lockdown times. The boundaries present in the Containment series are representative of life's metaphorical boundaries and not physical walls.

Creation

Creation is a multi-step process. Any pattern or text present is imagined and then created by the Artist. Pieces such as Love Notes - Self Reflection, begin as a diagram notation in the Artist's sketchbook. Chambers develops her sketches and expands on the idea until she feels that it expresses its intention. Next, a still life is created and photographed for reference material. The painting process itself explores the photographic reference while allowing the physical characteristics of the paint to play with light, texture and colour.

Thank you so much for your participation in my virtual exhibition. If you're anything like myself, I've really missed mixing and chatting about art this past year. I hope in-person exhibitions will resume again soon.
