We recently went by Pace Gallery to see sculptor John Chamberlain’s 13th and final solo with the gallery (he recently left to become represented by Gagosian). Chamberlain has made his 50-year career by creating large-scale painted metal sculptures—typically out of car parts—which bring to mind three-dimensional abstract expressionist paintings. His current exhibition with Pace consists of more than a dozen such sculptures from the 1980s through the 2000s and is showing through July 1. Take a look at images from the show, after the jump.
