"Jack Chambers was undoubtedly one of the key Canadian painters from the last half of the 20th century. He was exceptional in his drive to triumph regionalism not on sentimental grounds but for the reality of living and working in his hometown of London, Ontario. Yet for all his contributions to painting on a national and local level, there is one aspect of Chamber's career that remains largely unknown. Between 1964 and 1970 Chambers released a series of experimental movies. These are what Chambers referred to as "personal" films, made to liberate his own feelings at a time when he felt the need to escape the professional commitment to paintings. As Ross Woodman writes, the films were attempts to "wake up an audience which he feared his painting might now be putting to sleep.""--Container

Jack Chambers : light, spirit, time, place and life( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Jack Chambers: Light, Spirit, Time, Place and Life is the first major volume to be published on the work of Jack Chambers, one of Canada's most recognized and broadly influential artists. Featuring a selection of some 100 works including paintings, drawings, prints, and films, and materials from the artist's extensive papers, the book focuses on Chambers's own unique brand of "perceptive realism," his use of light, place, time, and spirit, all of which were central to his work. A brilliant draughtsman and remarkable painter, Chambers spend his early adulthood travelling and studying in Europe, where he met Pablo Picasso. When he returned to his hometown of London, Ontario, in 1961, he found himself at the centre of a vibrant art scene that would become the backdrop for his films and the surrealist-influenced works based on his dream-like evocations of memory. This book draws on the large collection of the artist's work held by the AGO. Featuring more than 100 colour reproductions, an extensive chronology, and a complete catalogue of the AGO's collection of Chambers's artworks, the volume also includes critical essays by Sarah Milroy, Christopher Dewdney, Mark Cheetham, Gillian Mackay, Ross Woodman and curator-writer Dennis Reid, as well as unique personal reflections in a variety forms by writers Michael Ondaatje and Susan Crean, and painters John Scott and Eric Fischl
