Catalogue Note

"These earlier sculptures are the end product of a process in which formerly elegant cars, now turned to junk, are again transformed by the artist into the 'elegance' of sculptural high-art objects."
Dan Graham, "John Chamberlain: Conceptual Artist" in Exh. Cat., New York, Gagosian Gallery, John ChamberlainNew Sculpture, 2011, p. 139
