About Eric Chamberlain

 

Throughout his entire life Eric has had stunning waking visions and dreams of images and music that fuel all of his ambitious, bold and unique work. There is a constant stream of this energy from beyond that informs and connects his work in art, music and film, all within his aesthetic he calls Cinetecture, a portmanteau of "cinema" and "architecture" that perfectly describes his singular vision from beauty to terror and often both. A daring risk-taker, Chamberlain gave up a promising career in defense and aerospace to pursue art and write, direct and produce a feature film in which he shot, scored, acted in, produced VFX and edited entirely himself. This in addition to producing other short films as well as countless pieces of acrylic, digital and motion-based art. The quintessential artist, Eric  Chamberlain has tirelessly, relentlessly sacrificed all else to dedicate his entire life to music, art and film.

 

His work often portrays an empyreal flow between Janusian thinking (polar modes or ideas), homospatial layering (e.g. architecture as frozen music, music as a soul, etc.) and sepconic articulation (merging characteristics of different modes, forms, energies and aesthetics without losing the original DNA of such). He is also inspired by imagining aesthetic beyond the human perspective, both spiritually and biologically.

 

Chamberlain has also written and published a self-help book for creatives titled The Eye of Gogi, and has donated art to Online publications. He helps small animals and other creatures when he can.

Artist Statement

 

Art can change how we see the world by changing the way we see ourselves. As an artist, essentially a filmmaker working with cinema as well as eternally static frames, I seek a balance between aesthetic, energy, personal observation and accessibility. Using my aesthetic, Cinetecture, my goal is to use my vision to reveal unusual, perhaps forbidden perspectives of the living Hieronymus Bosch painting that is our endless human drama. My goal as an artist is twofold: create an expressive personal outlet for the flow of energy and vision within me while evoking or stirring something in the viewer emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, etc. that takes them beyond the confines of the system in which they live. While I have motivations and processes that serve my work, it is what the viewer brings of themselves that defines the experience. There is no requirement of the consumer to know my inspirations or processes. In fact, what the viewer brings, heart, mind and soul, is just as important as what I design.

 

The Future: Quadratura Cinetectura

 

Eric Chamberlain's present larger-scale objective is to assemble his ultimate vision, Quadratura Cinetectura, a multimedia gallery experience of his static abstract and non-representational works, motion and video works, his music and finally his pièce de résistance, a projection-mapping film entitled Quadratura Cinetectura. He has most recently completed a vast musical interpretation of these ideas in a massive quadruple album also titled Quadratura Cinetectura (click for info)
