Lindsay Chambers

Chambers explores the fragility of the human condition through paintings based on crumpled paper sculptures, often using text, pattern or groupings to create a dialogue with the viewer. Technically, she is concerned with the composition and complexity of working with the grey scale, challenging her ability to capture dimension and light with a minimalist palette.

Created for Art Gems, Interruption, is an exploration of the interplay between two-dimensional versus three-dimensional space and its unraveling upon the picture plane. Themes of inability, loss, potential, renewal and change were present during the creation of this piece. Left intentionally vague, Interruptioninvites the viewer to expand on the painting’s narrative.
