"Tom Chambers transforms the everyday into the mythical. His hyperreal images depict much more than a moment in time. Rather they show something far less tangible…perhaps a memory, feeling or dream…allowing the viewer to make a personal connection."
– Anne Kelly, Gallery Director
From 'Praise for Tom Chambers' Hearts and Bones'

Hearts and Bones
photographs by Tom Chambers
Signed Hardbound – $45.00
Charming, whimsical, and enigmatic, Tom Chambers' stirring photomontages have captivated collector's for more than 25 years. In that time, Chambers' vignettes have consistently and convincingly blended fantastical elements with the everyday to tell stories about the human condition–fragility, ritual, perseverance and trust. Hearts and Bones has been a very special exhibition for us at photo-eye Gallery. Not only is it a mid-career retrospective for Chambers, but it represents over a decade of his relationship with photo-eye as a represented artist, and carries the feeling of celebrating a milestone birthday with a family member. Punctuating the exhibition was the release of Tom's exquisite new monograph, published by Unicorn, including an introduction by former photo-eye Gallery Director Elizabeth Avedon. In fact, Avedon, and then Gallery Assistant Anne Kelly, both organized Chambers' first exhibition at photo-eye Gallery back in 2007.  It has been a delight to witness the progression of Tom's work here in the gallery these months, including the debut of his newest series Tales of Heroines.

To cap the exhibition, Chambers is debuting a new image in the Tales of Heroines series, Wintry Beacon (above).  The snowy background image was photographed by Chambers up on the hill above Santa Fe at the Native American and Folk Art museums.

Tom Chambers: Hearts and Bones closes this Saturday, February 16th. If you haven't already, we invite you to stop by the gallery or visit the online portfolio, to view this comprehensive collection of Chambers' photomontage artwork.
