Tom Chambers: Hearts and Bones

Opening Reception & Book Signing: Friday, November 30th, 5 – 7 PM
On View through February 16, 2019


photo-eye Gallery is thrilled to announce Hearts and Bones, a mid-career retrospective spanning more than twenty-five years of work by award-winning photographer Tom Chambers. Featuring work from nine different photographic projects, Hearts and Bones complements the recent release of Chambers’ third monograph, also titled Hearts and Bones, released in early October. An exhibition opening, artist reception, and book signing event will take place on Friday, November 30th from 5–7 pm during the Last Friday Art Walk in Santa Fe’s Railyard Arts district.

Employing Magic Realism, Tom Chambers’ complex single-setting narratives convincingly insert fantastical elements into our everyday existence. In this world, people share a kindred connection with animals, spoken words fall as floral blooms, and the metaphysical nature of light reveals sacred spectacles. Using imagery from the artist’s travels to locations such as Iceland, Italy, and Mexico, Chambers’ images appear otherworldly. The scenes are evocative, yielding a feeling of delight, wonder, and trepidations as Chambers explores themes of transformation, vitality, mythology, and identity. An early adopter of digital media, Chambers builds his improbable scenes by seamlessly integrating elements from multiple photographs into a single image.

On View October 26–January 5, 2019

photo-eye Bookstore’s Project Space is excited to announce William Coupon: Portraits, a solo exhibition featuring images of notable cultural icons and ethnographic studies dating back to the 1970s by celebrated Santa Fe-based photographer William Coupon. The exhibition corresponds with Coupon’s long-awaited monograph of the same title published earlier this year by Damiani.

For more than 40 years William Coupon has photographed an astonishing array of esteemed artists, politicians, athletes, and intellectuals, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mick Jagger, Jimmy Carter, and Mohammed Ali among many others. Inspired by classic portrait painters such as Rembrandt and Holbein, Coupon’s signature style places his subject against a hand-painted backdrop lit by a single oblique light source. This rich chiaroscuro lends Coupon’s portraits a dynamic weight while focusing our attention on his sitters’ expressions and engagement with the camera. The results are captivating. As an exhibition, William Coupon: Portraits acts as a kind of time capsule examining the personalities who have helped shape the last half-century.
