Linda Chamberlain: Flight

Vintage elements: glass lenses, printer's type, furniture hardware, clock faces are just some of the elements used in creating these theaters by Linda Chamberlain. In the studio, found objects take a direction of their own and, through the assemblage process, evolve into their own form.

Special painting processes unite all elements. Various woodworking equipment: the lathe, router and scroll saw, are employed to develop architectural elements and the painting supports. Texturing and transfer techniques, developed by the artist, contribute to the dialogue.

Chamberlain draws upon the simplification associated with the Arts and Crafts Period. She creates works that eliminate the superfluous in life, reducing reality to the essentials.

These pieces are part of the "Flight: Birds in Art" show currently in Orleans. Linda is represented at the Left Bank Small Works and Jewelry gallery in Wellfleet.

Her collection of bird studies are shown on our website.
