John Chamberlain’s modus operandi consisted in exploring innovative possible correlations between materials by creating particular metal sculptures, constructed from discarded automobile–body parts and other debris from the motor industry. These assembly works appear as interesting examples of dynamic and erotic beauty.

Following the same principles of his sculptural production and under the influence of the Futuristic artists, since 1977 Chamberlain has been producing a serie of photographs marked by a singular interest in improvisation and experimentation in... Read More
