1. Matthew Chambers’s practice involves painting nearly every day, without his glasses. Narration, symbolism, and destruction are commonly found in his paintings.

2. When he is unhappy with a painting he tears it into strips and uses them for future works. Strips of canvas are often employed in his works; he calls these his “slash paintings.”

3. His works can be found in the Zabludowicz Collection, the Saatchi Collection, and the Tate Britain.
