Biography

STEPHEN CHAMBERS (RA) (b 1960)

Stephen Chambers' work hovers between abstract and figurative, minimal and decorative, where colourful images of figures are held in a kind of suspended animation. His paintings speak of states of mind, behaviours and sensibilities which disrupt natural laws (like gravity) and fashion a very personal poetic language. He wants to develop a curiosity in his viewer, to seduce, to suggest ideas and thoughts, to evoke a sense of recognition in the imagination. He wants us to experience the 'feeling' of his painting, his own personal experiences, his fears, his memories of childishness tinged with a darker adult knowing. His paintings are a feast for the imagination but are also exquisitely crafted. Relying on flat planes of intense, seductive colour and pattern, their sheer beauty pulls us into his strange and complex world.

Stephen Chambers was born in London and trained at Central St Martin's and Chelsea School of Art. His most recent major project was The Court of Redonda, a large portrait series shown first during the 2017 Venice Biennale, then at The Heong Gallery at Downing College, Cambridge. He was elected a Royal Academician in 2005.
