In 2020, Chambers returned to painting full-time to begin building his oeuvre. He is influenced by the New York abstract expressionists of the 1940’s & 1950’s and their diverse non-representational styles. Chambers’ work often contains abstract fields of color in motion and is known for bold, dramatic brushstrokes, which convey his emotions & ideas with a dramatic sense of action. Working urgently, he embraces the role of serendipity and chance in his work.
Chambers currently works as a marketing specialist at the Delaware Public Archives in Dover, Delaware – the town where he was born – and resides in nearby Smyrna, Delaware – the town where he grew up.
