About this title

From Publishers Weekly:

If you've ever been involved in or seen a fatal car accident, you probably will relate to Chamberlain's sculpture. His brightly painted assemblages of auto-body parts are meant to reflect our violent, throwaway culture, although they easily could be mistaken for colorful, clever junk. Now the subject of a retrospective at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (where Sylvester is guest curator), his automotive art gets an obligatory academic tribute in this shiny catalogue. Besides the metallic pieces, Chamberlain also makes bulging urethane-foam cushions that, according to the text, evoke "surrogate flesh." But that's not all: this versatile experimenter also crushes aluminum foil and paints it with lacquer; creates bubble-like contraptions from synthetic polymer resin; and crushes paper, then paints it with resin.
