Catalogue Note

"John Chamberlain was the first to use automobile metal and to use color successfully in sculpture. He introduced the developments of American expressionism into sculpture and challenged the prevailing idea of sculpture as a solid mass."

Donald Judd, “John Chamberlain by Donald Judd” in Exh. Cat., New York, The Pace Gallery, John Chamberlain: New Sculpture, 1989, p. IV
