"Tom Chamberlain: Solo Exhibition"
2004-05-29 until 2004-06-26
Kontainer Gallery
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

Kontainer Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Tom Chamberlain in the US. Tom Chamberlain makes repeated marks, which travel in an ovular arc from one edge of the canvas to another, in near water-thin black over a white ground (or vice versa). An image is gradually created as the painting turns from light to dark where the lines repeatedly crisscross. When the process is halted, the canvasses are often close to pure black, retaining faint images, the ghost of the ground color and the tracks of the brush, hovering within a painted field. In an inversion of expressionism, the images are invoked in the areas with the least marks.

A recent graduate of The Royal Academy of Arts, London, Tom Chamberlain was nominated for Becks Futures in 2002. A year later, his work was included in „Shimmering Substance‰ ˆ curated by Barry Schwabsky and Catsou Roberts at Arnolfini, Bristol (traveled to Cornerhouse, Manchester). Other participating artists in „Shimmering Substance‰: Felix Gonzales Torres, Roger Hiorns, David Musgrave, Ernesto Neto, Lawrence Weiner, Pae White.

Kontainer is in the process of publishing a book on Tom Chamberlain's work with an essay by Terry R. Myers. The book will be available this fall. Terry R. Myers is an independent critic and curator living in Los Angeles, currently a faculty member at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and The Royal College of Art in London. His credits include the critically acclaimed survey exhibition "Robert Overby: Parallel, 1978-1969" at UCLA Hammer Museum, "Standing Still and Walking in Los Angeles", Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills, and the Jose Pardo show presented this year at Haunch of Venisson, London.
