Some brief overview of this book

Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Jack Chambers Light, Spirit, Time, Place and Life is the first major volume to be published on the work of Jack Chambers, one of Canadas most recognized and broadly influential artists. Featuring a selection of some 100 works including paintings, drawings, prints, and films, and materials from the artists extensive papers, the book focuses on Chamberss own unique brand of perceptive realism, his use of light, place, time, and spirit, all of which were central to his work. A brilliant draughtsman and remarkable painter, Chambers spend his early adulthood travelling and studying in Europe, where he met Pablo Picasso.

When he returned to his hometown of London, Ontario, in 1961, he found himself at the centre of a vibrant art scene that would become the backdrop for his films and the surrealist-influenced works based on his dream-like evocations of memory. This book draws on the large collection of the artists work held by the AGO. Featuring more than 100 colour reproductions, an extensive chronology, and a complete catalogue of the AGOs collection of Chamberss artworks, the volume also includes critical essays by Sarah Milroy, Christopher Dewdney, Mark Cheetham, Gillian Mackay, Ross Woodman and curator-writer Dennis Reid, as well as unique personal reflections in a variety forms by writers Michael Ondaatje and Susan Crean, and painters John Scott and Eric Fischl.
