Dominic Chambers Biography

Dominic Chambers creates large scale paintings and drawings that reference literary narratives cited in books, various mythologies, and Black history. His paintings often have a mythological or quasi-religious feel, with contemporary figures enraptured by supernatural experiences. His current work is invested in exploring moments of contemplation and meditation through reading and leisure. Chambers emphasizes, both in his writings and paintings, that in his view, art is as much an intellectual activity as reading. The arts are a means by which we engage with images, solve problems and connect with others. To maintain this sense of intellectual stimulation, Chambers' Albers series is directly inspired by the work of the late Josef Albers—a modernist who dealt expansively with color theory.
