Matthew Chambers


oil and acrylic on canvas
96 x 48 inches

Since 2008, Matthew Chambers has been working religiously on a set vertical dimension with a 2:1 ratio, spontaneously painting from images of magazines, newspapers, and mass mail. As a result, each painting yields a unique and rich visual story. When a piece is unsuccessful, he cuts it into strips and recycles them into a new work. In Is There One That Wouldn’t Weep, Chambers takes these strips and attaches them together to create a modernist composition that evokes chance, luminosity, and structure. Matthew Chambers lives and works in Los Angeles. His work has been collected by The Sender Collection, New York; Il Giardino dei Lauri, Italy; and Saatchi Collection, London. His work has been the focus of solo exhibitions at UNTITLED, New York; Zabludowicz Collection, London; and Blanket Contemporary Art, Vancouver.
