This series on paper exists in tandem with Chambers' series of abstract paintings intended to reconceptualize the space where creation happens - the studio as jazz club, rather than factory. "Seen by day, the jazz club eludes to the energy and movements of the evening; the walls hold the tales of skill, intellect, improvisation, emotion, and decision-making. Eyes closed and sweat dripping; the audience is attuned to the sanctity of the moment." To make this edition, Chambers sprayed nylon flocking fibers onto paper prepared with hand-painted adhesive, shaking off any excess fibers after twelve hours. As a result, each piece is subtly unique.
Due to the nature of the process, each piece will contain slight variation. In order to best display the texture and tactility of the piece, the artist recommends framing it without glass.
