Where What IS?
May 16th - September 12th, 2015
Opening Reception Saturday, May 16th, from 6-8pm
Proof Gallery is very pleased to present Where what is?, new work by Boston artist James Cambronne. Conceived with the architectural specifics of the Proof gallery space in mind, Where what is? incorporates a number of sculptural and site specific elements which engage the observer’s awareness of color, light, space and movement. The installation extends the highly precise abstract painting practice that Cambronne is best known for into a phenomenal environment.
Cambronne’s work is a proposition based on an inner structure that is hinted at but held from view. Derived from the logic of the sacred, the secret and the mysterious, it refers to the totems of native North American cultures as well as the inscrutability afforded by a meticulous finish. Perceptual color shifts and exquisite awareness of bodies in space are constants within the space, punctuated by rhythm, interval and a tacit mathematical order.
James Cambronne is a Boston-based visual artist and educator. He is Professor of Fine Art 2D at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. He has exhibited widely, including solo shows at Alexandre Gallery and Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York and installations at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado and the Frick Gallery in Maine. He is a Master Printer and has collaborated on editions with a number of artists. Originally from South Dakota, his past cultural experience in Montana and South Dakota continue to inform his practice.
