Leigh Anne Chambers

“My work considers social ordering, or how a society determines what is tasteful, while engaging domestic materials to challenge traditional notions of art. I alter familiar household items like vinyl flooring and carpets and use these low materials as a source of inspiration.

 

I choose domestic materials for both practical and formal purposes and alter them in the attempt to derive meaning. I make works to consider taste and time. In these new pieces, I have added some drawing elements, reminiscent of coloring book pages, as maybe a nod to having a plan, but not really. I continue to search for ways to escape and exist without a clear narrative present, as this seems to be the only sane way for me to operate.”

Originally from Nova Scotia, Leigh Anne earned her BFA from East Carolina University and MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
