Mediated Realism

A Solo Show by Truman Chambers

These works reflect a reality increasingly composed of mediated, secondary experience. Such experiences and the visual language of forms like animation, video games, and consumer-grade photography emerge as a matter of commercial convenience. Still, there is a real emotional weight carried by these aesthetics both socially and individually. This imagery is meaningful despite the depersonalization inherent to such forms. By bringing a new slowness and consideration to this imagery as traditionally drawn and painted works, I am emphasizing both the necessary coldness of the sources in measure with their personal, evocative potential.
