Tom R. Chambers. Pixelscapes: Next Generation and Inside-deep Series/Pixelscapes: Third Generation:

Exhibition at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. (as a part of Art Is Everywhere, Boston Cyberarts Festival), April 26 - May 10, 2003.

Minimalist in their approach, these Pixelscape compositions cease to function as a reflection of reality through image magnification and pixel configuration. Chambers hopes that they are capable of evoking a spiritual experience and in keeping with similar beliefs of the early Pioneers of Abstraction and Minimalism. These Pioneers practiced Art as a metaphysical quest for higher truth, and these Pixelscapes possibly move in a similar quest or direction as it relates to placement, juxtaposition and color-field excitation. In favor of felt experience, these Pixelscapes begin to transcend the Digital Art genre by making use of themselves. And because of the magnification, a revelation of sorts exists through seen pixels.

Tom R. Chambers, a Documentary Photographer and Visual Artist for over thirty years, is currently working with digital generation and manipulation as an art form under the namesake of New Directions and Pixelscapes, which begins to approach a true abstract, visual language in Digital Art. He has exhibited his Documentary Portraiture and Visual Arts throughout the U.S.A. and worldwide (over forty exhibitions); and his mixed media and interactive work, Mother's 45s, was selected through national search (U.S.A.) for exhibition as a part of the Parents show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, U.S.A., 1992. American Photo magazine listed one of his Photodocumentary projects, Dyer Street Portraiture, in its Notable Exhibitions section, March, 1986 issue. Chambers also completed a three-year tour as Art Conservator and Curator for the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and as the Initiator/Instructor of The McEwen Photographic Studio for the National Gallery's Art School.
