THE CHAMBERS PROJECT

The Chambers Project began with the intention of making contemporary psychedelic art accessible in Nevada County. Since we opened the doors in 2018, we have presented the community with a spectrum of cutting-edge, surreal, and abstract fine art. The Chambers Project’s permanent location in Nevada City has gathered momentum, regularly packing its shows with enthusiastic viewers and steadily selling paintings and sculptures. We are excited to continue our support for the extraordinary zeitgeist of creative talent in California and beyond.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

“THE PSYCHEDELIC SUN AND OTHER DRAWINGS” BY JACAEBER KASTOR

In turns perplexing, disorienting, wondrous and utterly beguiling, Jacaeber Kastor’s drawings make you look, look again and then still more, trying to find your way in their miasmic magic until at last, well, you discover the special pleasure of being truly lost. And when you think you’re done, when you’ve decoded the esoteric and abstract, conjured all the forms and meanings from these oceans of latency, answered the call of otherness as if it were the sphinx’s riddle- turn the work or flip your head, around and around, because there is no single perspective to read Kastor’s psychedelic topography: it is an entwined and constantly unfolding omniverse that has no right side up or upside down.

PREVIOUS EXHIBITIONS

“SHREDS” BY CHRISTIAN CALABRO 

July 10, 2019 – Nevada City, CA. On July 20, 2019, The Chambers Project will feature a collection of fifteen mixed media pieces entitled Shreds by internationally renowned designer and fine artist Christian Calabrò.

Originally from Zurich, Calabrò came to New York City to study graphic design and his talent immediately landed him employment at Atlantic, Verve, and Warner Records – among many others. The fiercely competitive market pushed him to refine every last detail of album cover art for musical giants like Tony Bennett, Rage Against the Machine, and Depeche Mode. His design work even earned him two Grammy nominations, but he also watched up close as the recording industry convulsed and sales plunged.

“GEODAESIA” BY COLIN PRAHL 

The hypnotic brain paintings of Colin Prahl will be on full display for Northern California viewers throughout the month of June. Prahl’s 16 works entitled “Geodaesia,” draw on the celestial and psychedelic while applying draftsman-like precision. 

A native upstate New Yorker, Prahl attended RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) earning a B.A. in Illustration in 2012 before moving to New York City where he worked as a studio assistant to several prominent artists. His aesthetic has been shaped largely by his studies of perception, a lengthy exploration of neuroscience guiding his process. 

The “Geodaesia” body of work attempts to capture a sense of deep space, the suggestion of other dimensions, and the intangible vibrations of the mind. Prahl works in acrylic airbrush and the result is shimmering expanses of color and texture that imply movement, auric, geometric canvases that appear to pulse right off the wall. 

This is Prahl’s first solo show on the West Coast after growing interest in his contributions to a group show last year in Arizona. Owner Brian Chambers says, “It’s really exciting for us to bring Colin’s work to California, his paintings attracted so much attention in 2018. I think people are really going to be blown away when they see this show altogether. The effect is indescribable.”

“REINCARNATION” BY HOLLIE DILLEY 

The pop-surrealist sculptures of Hollie Dilley will take the spotlight at the Chambers Project in Nevada City, CA on May 3, 2019, at 5pm. The artist, 39, creates intricate works using ceramics, animal skins and bones, small metals, and more.

Beginning with metal fabricated and bronze casted sculpture with a focus on animals, Hollie Dilley soon discovered ceramics. This medium helped her create the textures and details necessary to reflect her vision and honor the diverse connections between humans and animals. The art of taxidermy injects real-life context to her otherwise fantastical creatures.

“I am honored to share the work I created at the Chambers Project,” the artist says. “It is an amazing opportunity to show the community, especially those who donated animal specimens, the vision I’m so passionate about.”
