Chambers' Pixelscapes as Minimal Art and in keeping with Malevich's Suprematism ... the feeling of nonobjectivity ... the creation of a sense of bliss and wonder via abstraction. Chambers' action of looking within a Malevich photo to find the basic component(s) ... pixel(s) is the same action as Malevich looking within himself ... inside the objective world ... for a pure feeling in creative art to find his "Black Square", "Black Cross" and other Suprematist works.

Chambers uses this format reminiscent of the CinemaScope movies that impressed him when he was a child and cognizant of the popularity of wide-screen television in today's homes. The bit of distortion seen in most of the images creates a sense of drama with a focus on darks and lights to set a certain mood. There's an otherworldliness that seems to run through the series of photographs.

This contemporary approach resurrects the past through the present: discussion of Ancestral contributions to the State's development via historical text and visualization of their Descendants, today (1986), through documentary photography to bring forth those founding bloodlines, and to offer to the viewer a likeness or similarity of features between the Descendants and their Ancestors. This project was funded by Providence 350, Inc. as a part of Rhode Island's 350th Anniversary Celebration, 1986. Add Print to Cart Add Download to Cart Tom Series (photo book) Print: $25.20 Download: $12.50 Chambers utilizes the self-portrait to project his life experiences. His portrait remains constant with the experience [situation] indicated as a change or flux in the image. The accompanying text details his experiences. TOM SERIES is not only an artwork about Chambers' life ... biography [visual/textual] ... but also a reference tool ... a study of history through his existence. The constancy of the same portrait [Chambers' image] indicates a human being's existence within a world/an environment that's ever influencing and changing the psyche. Viewers of the same generation will probably begin to travel down their own personal memory lanes that may or may not cross his own. Viewers of today's young generation will get a hint of what has come before them and might be ahead of them in an immediate sense. TOM SERIES becomes a litmus test for this generation.
