American, 1927-2011. The prominent sculptor, Chamberlain believed in using the most common materials to create his art. He is recognized for his twisting sculptures made from scrap and banged up and discarded automobile and industrial debris. He explored the interplay of color, weight and balance, and worked with the energies of Pop Art, Minimalism, Baroque and Abstract Expressionism to create voluminous and distinctive metal installations. In the later part of his career, he explored large-scale photography. His early days in the U.S. Navy and extensive travel across the Pacific, Mediterranean, and Atlantic influenced his perception of scale and viewpoint.
