John Chamberlain

“John Chamberlain accomplished with crushed auto parts what the Abstract Expressionists accomplished with paint. He created vast, swirling compositions of colored metal scraps from automobiles that earned him international fame… Chamberlain transposes dynamic color abstractions from his sculptures to two-dimensional surfaces.” — Pace

“John Chamberlain’s dynamic agglomerations of scrap metal and used automobile bodies have been admired for translating the achievements of Abstract Expressionist painting into three-dimensional form…On some level, his conglomerations of automobile carcasses must inevitably be perceived as witnesses of the car culture from which they were born, and for which they serve as memorials.
