Robert Chambers was born in 1958 in Miami, Florida. Chambers\' work is influenced by his father, a Cellular and Molecular Physiologist, and his mother, a painter/sculptor from Oregon. He worked in his father\'s laboratory in Miami, and in Woods Hole, MA at the MBL. He also spent time in his mother\'s studio. \"My parents took me to many unique and exciting places, both here and outside of the United States. They trained me in many of their skills.\" It is clear his family background plays a large role in his work. \"They involved me in the arts and sciences from an early age.\"Chambers describes his work as an \"experimentation of material and tool with contemporary narrative response.\" His pieces can be seen internationally. His scientific background is apparent in his sculptures, some combining mythology and molecular composition. His latest residency has been with the Fabric Workshop and Museum, a program that celebrates artists using experimental materials and techniques. Last year, he brought the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center to life with a commission awarded by Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places, displaying two 12 ton marble sculptures titled \"Orbital 1\" & \"Orbital 2\" and a large-scale programmed LED light installation titled \"Light Field\" in the lobby.Chambers earned his BFA from UM in 1983 and his MA from NYU in 1990. He also attended programs in Italy and France. Later he returned to contribute to both schools, teaching at NYU and as a visiting professor at UM. His first solo show was at the Sculpture Center, NYC. Recent exhibitions include the \"2011 Visual Arts\" at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in NYC. Awards include the Nancy Graves, Louis Comfort Tiffany, South Florida Cultural Consortium and the USA Nimoy Fellowship. He has pieces in the permanent collection At MOMA, NYC, MAM, FL., MOCA, FL., the Laumeier in St Louis, the Kemper Museum, KC, MO. and The Fabric Workshop and Museum in PA. [More] [Less]
