[April 21 2017]
Galerie Karsten Greve presents “Photographs”, an exhibition devoted to the American eclectic artist John Chamberlain, who — since the early 1960s — has left his mark on contemporary art as one of the most influential representatives of the three–dimensional Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art movement.
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 which the subjects come out distorted and poetically disappear into a flux of colors.
On view until April 29th at Galerie Karsten Greve, 5 rue Debelleyme, Paris.
