Dominic Chambers creates vibrant paintings that simultaneously engage art historical models, such as color field painting and gestural abstraction, and contemporary concerns regarding race, identity, and leisure. Interested in how art can function as a mode for understanding, recontextualizing, or renegotiating one’s relationship to the world, the artist sees painting as a critical and intellectual endeavor, as much as an aesthetic one. Born in St. Louis, MO and based in New Haven, CT, Chambers has presented work internationally, and has work in the collections of esteemed institutions that include the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (promised gift); High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, FL; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; and Pérez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL.

As in many of the artist’s prior works, Leave Room for the Wind takes literature as its inspiration—particularly, Mary Oliver’s book-length poem The Leaf And The Cloud (2000), in which the author writes, “I will leave room for the wind combing the grass, / for the feather falling out of the grouse’s fan-tail, / and fluttering down, like a song.” Resplendent with saturated washes of blues and greens, the work centers on two children who fly translucent kites in the open sky. Roaming through a verdant landscape absent of any architectural markers, the primary characters appear immersed in their purely recreational act, unbound by neither time nor expectations. In creating this scene, Chambers resists the emphasis that society places on productivity, instead making a case for the necessity of finding enjoyment in stillness. hand drawn embellishments with color pencil and charcoal. Fifteen prints in the edition have been hand embellished by the artist using colored pencil and charcoal to add additional detail to each work.
