‘They don't look like part of the real world and yet they are of things. But the things she is depicting don't have real forms – such as could be described by a directional light – and they are not subject to an earthly gravitational force. If you were to divide painting into figurative, surrealist and abstract, then Chambers' paintings would be a Venn diagram of all three. The subjects being depicted in themselves have become abstracted before they even caught her eye. They are machines of the imagination – forgotten inventions and subverted visions of a world driven by technology...’ Ruth Solomons.
