Danville Chadbourne: The Suspension of Age
by Dan R. Goddard


Fusing Modernism with elements of tribal art, San Antonio artist Danville Chadbourne has created a vast, sprawling world of work that uses simple organic shapes to evoke psychological and spiritual states. His serene sculptures resemble the relics and totems of a lost or unknown civilization, combining a modern aesthetic with primitive materials, mostly clay, wood, stone, fiber, and bone with a few manmade found objects—but never plastic.

The Suspension of Credibility, 1986–2001.
Acrylic paint, wood, earthenware, and metal, 42 x 96 x 83 in.
