IAN CHAMBERLAIN, SHIFTING SANDS, North Atlantic Wall.
Published Rabley Drawing Centre, Editor: Meryl Ainslie
Texts: Fiona Robinson, Meryl Ainslie, Ian Chamberlain
Fully illustrated softback, 44pp.
‘Shifting Sands, North Atlantic Wall’ illustrates the collection of new drawings and etchings made by Ian Chamberlain 2015 – 2020. It includes an introduction to his work by Fiona Robinson, illuminating quotes from the artist about this project and the making of his etchings: plus photographs of his unique ‘etching coding system’ for marking up his etchings during the development of the plates in the studio.
The Atlantic Wall is a WWII German defence system built along the west coast of Europe. Chamberlain interprets these brutalist forms as architectural metaphors concerning boundaries and borders.
“ His central images, a mass of line and dark tone, float in an amorphous white space. Unanchored, their scale is conjecture, their monumentality emphasised. Left in limbo their apparent indestructibility is destabilised.”
Fiona Robinson, artist, writer and currently President of the Royal West of England Academy of Art.
