John Chamberlain: Choices
American sculptor John Chamberlain is the subject of a large retrospective at New York’s Guggenheim Museum. Titled Choices, the exhibition explores the artist’s lifelong fascination with crushed cars and distorted metal forms, presenting work dating from the 1960s to 2011 – the year that Chamberlain died.
His sculptures combine poured paints, coatings and treatments such as anodising, and the physical compacting of metal structures to create abstract forms. Both the Stylus reports Anodised Colour and Spraypaint Effects explore the techniques evident in his work.
Choices runs until May 13 2012.
