Chamberlain | Mitchell
Gagosian Gallery, Rome, Italy: Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition that juxtaposes paintings by Joan Mitchell and sculptures by John Chamberlain. Born just one year apart in the Midwestern United States, Mitchell and Chamberlain were inspired by the muscular spontaneity of Abstract Expressionists such as Franz Kline and Willem De Kooning. Mitchell is considered a principal figure in the second generation of Abstract Expressionists as well as one of the few female exponents. Her lively and impassioned paintings laud the beauty of the natural world. Chamberlain is best known for his metal sculptures constructed from discarded automobile-body parts and other modern metal detritus, where the industrial origin of materials is underscored by a cumulative formal elegance.
