Deborah Colton Gallery presents Lindy Chambers: "Living the Dream" open house
Deborah Colton Gallery will present "Living the Dream," an exhibition featuring paintings by Lindy Chambers.
Long before she puts paint to a canvas, Chambers’ artistic process begins with the simple act of paying attention. From the outside looking in, she observes often overlooked aspects of life. Rural Texas inspires her work. Leaving the pavement for the dirt and gravel dust, she crosses a line into an awkwardly displaced universe of mobile homes and abandoned vehicles, where stray dogs wander yards and goats are raised for food. Existence is tenuous here. Migrants leave cultural influences in their wake. Brightly colored mobile homes of acid gold and maroon, cerulean blue and rose are abundant. Resilience and optimism conquer meager incomes, happiness and peace replace the uncertainty of a former life. She uses these bright colors to introduce a look into their lives. To see, learn and appreciate this dream in their diverse habitat.
The exhibition can be seen online through the gallery’s Viewing Room. Installation and artwork images can be seen through the gallery’s Virtual Slide Show and website.
The exhibition will remain on view through August 26.
