.first of All, Rest in Peace Sir & thanks for all d progress!

I would like to mention on my blog for one of d first modern sculptors in d art history. Inventive for d time when he start with his creativity work and pretty unique to be part of d history as respected artist that was promoting d diversity of expression nowadays. It’s hard to find ur own signature, to be something that shows d quality of d artist also as d topic he is working on.

.

John Angus Chamberlain [ b.April 16, 1927 – d. December 21, 2011] was American sculptor that is best known for creating sculptures from old automobiles (or parts of) that bring the Abstract Expressionist style of painting into three dimensions ..

His works have been exhibited around the world and have been included in the São Paulo Art Biennial (1961, 1994), the Venice Biennale (1964), the Whitney Biennial (1973, 1987) and Documenta, Kassel, Germany (1982) and he has had over 100 solo shows, traveling exhibitions, and retrospectives.

:d art artstory.org writes:

“he is creating vibrantly colored, dynamic sculptures from crushed, twisted and bent automobile parts. Inspired by the scale, color and impulsive creation of Abstract Expressionist work, Chamberlain was a pioneering force through his use of found materials and diverse colors. While also experimenting with a variety of sculptural media, as well as with film and painting, he greatly impacted many generations of artistic movements, including Minimalism and Pop Art, and continues to create inventive work today.”

Key Ideas
  • Chamberlain retains the jagged edges and unrefined paint colors of his primary medium – steel automobile parts – to illustrate his spontaneous, improvisational process. This technique brings the instinctual and gestural brushstrokes of his Abstract Expressionist peers into three dimensions.
  • Rejecting the frequent comparison of his work to violent car crashes, Chamberlain intends his audience to view his work aesthetically without preconceived ideas about the materials’ past. He aims to give everyday objects entirely new meanings, ranging from poetic abstraction to figural allusion.
  • A main concept for Chamberlain is the idea of “fit,” a natural, innate interconnection between sections of his sculptures. Rather than predetermining structures, he lets the fragments’ shapes and colors dictate composition.

:In d bulletin we can find this part that highlight part of his life and maybe d main reason why he start using this stuffs as material for his art.

.

Automobiles are a loaded subject, especially in the decades following World War II in the United States, which has led some observers to ascribe specific social meanings to Chamberlain’s art. The crushed automobiles have been connected to the violent death of Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock — who died in a car crash in 1956 — and then to the slightly later, 1960s car-crash paintings of Pop artist Andy Warhol. Chamberlain was skeptical. Of his choice of automobile sheet metal, the artist once said, “Michelangelo had a lot of marble in his backyard, so to speak; I had a lot of this stuff.

Using a common material is best for sculpture, he added, because it “doesn’t get in the way of doing an uncommon thing.

.In 1957 after his first work called Shortstop & made out of two fenders repeatedly run over by a truck we read from guardian.co.uk part of that what he said in that time:

“It was like, God, I finally found an art supply, and it was so cheap it just made you laugh,” he later said. “I think of my art materials not as junk but as garbage. Manure, actually: it goes from being the waste material of one being to the life-source of another.”

.d Guggenheim museum in New York is preparing retrospective exhibition from his works in February. We can see nearly 100 pieces from his earliest monochromatic welded iron-rod sculptures to the large-scale foil creations of recent years.
