John Chamberlaiin

John Chamberlain accomplishes with crushed auto parts what the Abstract Expressionists accomplished with paint. He creats vast, swirling compositions of colored metal scraps from automobiles that earned him international fame. In his prints, Chamberlain transposes dynamic color abstractions from his sculptures to two-dimensional surfaces. Since the 1950s, Chamberlain has worked with steel ribbons to create his sculptures.
