To escape from the outside world and give way to Matthew Chambers’ floral portals is a moment of bliss. Void of the traditional theoretical framework universally accepted to uphold a painting, this new body of work on view at Zach Feuer seems detached from itself. A beautiful and elusive thing for one to achieve. Instead of seeking to uncover the myth of meaning or making Chambers allows the viewer to enter the work purely on a surface level much like the mantra that drops you into a meditation. It is this state that one could argue allows you to bring in meaning without inhibition, for me it was a pairing inspired by sheer prettiness. This free flowing Rachel Comey dress is a hint of exotic escapism pushed further with the signature flavor of these Charlotte Olympia Frida Kahlo inspired sandals and a Cosma De Marinis blooming mesh headpiece. I’m caught for a moment then released to fly away.
