Matthew Chambers Revolve and Twist at Contemporary Ceramics, London
1 - 24 April 2021
Matthew Chambers is an internationally recognised ceramic artist creating mesmerising sculptures that draw the eye into the deepest depth of each piece.
Matthew specialises in sculptures constructed of multiple sections built on the potter’s wheel. Inspired by visual rhythm and the beautiful repetition he witnesses in his everyday life, from beautiful structures to patterns in nature, in this exhibition Matthew reveals works that have followed a process almost the reverse of his usual way of making.
The pieces in this collection have been constructed from the inside-out and focus on bringing a heighten sense of calm and serenity with increased space between layers in subtle shades and light pastel hues.
“The mystery in the construction which often seems to grab people was never fully on my mind when I began this idea, but I always enjoy seeing the wonder in the faces of people as they experience them for the first time. Along with trying to express beauty, I also consciously focus in on this when making to keep the mystery alive and the experience intact.”
