Lindy Chambers’ work bridges realism and the abstract, the perfect foil for her subject matter. She represents trash monochromatically unimportant to the inhabitants of her work but still an integral part of the composition. It is inevitable that a world hidden from view would suffer from vast misconceptions. This exhibition of large paintings addresses life as we know it now in the city as well as rural life. Rural Texas informs Chamber’s work. Here, well maintained acreage yields to an abundance of trash, mobile homes and abandoned vehicles. Stray dogs wander the yards where goats are raised for food. Existence is transient here. Migrants leave cultural influences in their wake. These traces inspire the artist as do the forms and colors; brightly colored mobile homes of acid gold and deep maroon, cerulean blue with quinacridone rose. Resilience and optimism conquer meager incomes.
