‘In 1972 Chamberlain began a series of sculptures made of lacquer and resin-coated aluminum foil. The industrial weight aluminum foil was formed into balls and then compressed and wadded. These were then sprayed with auto lacquer and polyester resin. A group of these works was first exhibited at the Castelli Gallery from December 8, 1973 to January 12, 1974.’
