My paintings and drawings are the result of a wrestling match between me and the canvas. During this process I rework, erase, and even turn everything upside down to correct things, repaint, and retry. The lines and layers of the final image give it a history. If you look closely you might see evidence where a nose moved up on a face or a window in an interior exists behind what’s now a blank wall, or where a shadow behind an enigmatic figure looks an awful lot like it might have once been an angel’s wing. This process gives the picture a kind of Past Life that makes it more interesting to look at. If you want to know the truth, this is how I play.

 

Mike Chambers

I paint bikes, doors, floors, cobblestones, chairs, ghosts, everyday saints, angels, windows, easels, shadows, and stripes.
