John Chamberlain

I loved the John Chamberlain show at the Guggenheim.

Made of crushed car parts and other materials, his sculptures looked like abstract expressionism in 3D especially when viewed across the rotunda (rather than up close). The artist had more range than I thought. His pieces from the 60s to the 80s looked best I think. Towards the end of his career his work lost some of its edge and became too slick.

The show runs through May 13, 2012.
