An old steel drum exposed to the elements and bent in such a way as to suggest a sleeve inspired Gordon Chandler to create a series of kimono sculptures. Cut to suggest sleeves and a spread collar, this discarded piece of metal takes on the look of a traditional kimono. In this context, the dented, dimpled and rusted grey metal takes on the look of a richly brocaded fabric. With an eye to the aesthetic possibilities of this humble material, Chandler invests the steel with sculptural fluidity and a wry sense of form. Each piece contains a unique serial number specific to the piece.
