Known for his craftsmanship and use of primal materials such as wood and clay, Chadbourne's work is often likened to a body of cultural artifacts. The visual and ritual impact of these beautiful objects is made more complex by their provocative, poetic and often paradoxical titles. They are, in essence, monuments to irrational ideas and human impulses.
Danville Chadbourne was born in Bryan, Texas in 1949. A resident of San Antonio since 1979, Chadbourne taught at the college level for 17 years until he devoted himself in 1989 to working full-time on his artwork. Chadbourne has been featured in more than 100 one-person shows and numerous group exhibitions. His works are included in many public and private collections across the nation.
