In conjunction with San Antonio’s Contemporary Art Month, the Art Department of University of the Incarnate Word presents a solo exhibition by San Antonio sculptor Danville Chadbourne, in the Kelso Art Center Semmes and Condos Galleries, February 21-March 20, 2020. Opening Reception is 21 February 6-8pm. The exhibition features over 50 recently completed works, including paintings, wall-oriented relief works, freestanding sculptures, suspended works, and smaller-scale sculptures in clay and wood. Exploring the range of gestural possibilities, Chadbourne’s handling of grounded, organic clay forms is balanced by an intuitive sense of the dynamic tension, movement, and juxtaposition of found wooden elements. Similarly, Chadbourne’s use of bold color and iconic, abstract symbol imagery spans strong textures and polished surfaces, in both sculptural and flat contexts. Drawing on forms, colors, gestures, and metaphorical concepts from nearly 50 years of art making, Chadbourne continues to create works that seems at once new and ancient. “Songs of Continuity” offers a glimpse of the aesthetic consistency with which Chadbourne views the world.
