The ideas for Gordon Chandler’s provocative sculptures evolve from immediate and local influences that often seem random and accidental. No wonder then that rusted and misshapen scraps of discarded metal star in many of his works. In this piece titled “Yellow and Black Flood Control,” a metal sign advertising a plumbing business is folded and split halfway down the center. The split sides fold outward to form a collar, revealing a “lining” steel and riveted-on silver “label.” Rectangular in shape and cut to exploit the black and yellow for its graphic potential, the piece has the look of a neatly folded soccer shirt emblazoned with team names and sponsors. 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.
