About the Art

Uniquely, Chamberlain's preferred medium is acrylic paint on masonite. Acrylics allow him to create precise detail and bring to life the vibrant colors that are typically found in the regions he recaptures.

His self-taught style was originally influenced by his New England contemporaries, and shows an incredible attention to detail. Charles so excellently recaptures the solitude and antiquity of rural America, making his subjects the likes of forgotten old cars, tired wagon wheels, weathered covered bridges, and deteriorating barns. These paintings are created with a fanatical devotion to detail and authenticity and the textures, moods and colors evoke a remembrance of a quality and pace of life that has almost been forgotten.
