Lora Schlesinger Gallery presents Ann Chamberlin’s Vaivén, New Paintings from Mexico. The show is the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition opens on Saturday, May 30 from 5 – 7 pm and is on view through July 11, 2015.
Vaivén, New Paintings from Mexico are inspired by places constantly in flux, where people are passing through. An airport, an airplane, a hotel lobby or an RV Park; she captures the energy of these environments by incorporating multiple points of view and vantage points in one picture plane. Within the work, there is no singular linear anecdote. Like a kaleidoscope of thoughts, her tales spin around and around. She creates evocative narratives that explore social and political scenarios that are intriguing, endearing, and at times unsettling. Subtle implications of crimes are apparent within the imagery, such as the women counting boxes of money in the painting “Money Counters in Panama”. In the painting 10 women surround a table sorting and counting boxes of cash. The bills are compiled and stacked neatly into cardboard boxes. In the foreground, a woman with a red dress addresses the viewer, with a notebook in hand. The somber look on their faces, their undergarments peeking through their patterned dresses, and the small island in the distance, creates an open-ended narrative for the audience to interpret the work.
Ann Chamberlin was awarded the City of Los Angeles Individual Artists’ Fellowship Grant and the J. Paul Getty Individual Artist Grant and was a Fulbright Scholar to Medellín, Colombia. Chamberlin has shown at many museums and galleries including the Gallery at REDCAT, Los Angeles, The Frye Art Museum, Seattle, the Armory Center for the Arts, and the Long Beach Museum of Art.
