Last week I was at a conference in Manhattan, and walking down Park Avenue came upon these colorful aluminium sculptures in front of the building, The Seagram. They are an exhibition of four monumental sculptures by the late artist John Chamberlain. Soaring to a height of fifteen feet, the four playfully twisted sculptures are constructed from silver, green and copper industrial aluminum. The aluminum material has a reflective and texturized surface that respond to changes in the atmosphere, altering the overall appearance of each sculpture. Therefore, depending on the time of the day, light plays a pivotal role in adding another facet to exploring these wonders.
Jake’s Sunday Post is Wonderful, and these sculptures seem to fit the bill.
