Upon discovering a weathered steel drum that had been warped to resemble the sleeve of a garment, artist Gordon Chandler was inspired to embark on a series of kimono sculptures formed from found metal scraps. With an eye to the aesthetic possibilities of this humble material, Chandler invests reclaimed steel with sculptural fluidity and a wry sense of form.

Salvaged steel scraps take on the shape of a short-sleeved jacket in this large, wall-mounted sculpture entitled "Retro Shirt." The found metal is cut and shaped to resemble draped fabric with rigid, starched sleeves and a gently curving collar. The shirt has a coated finish in light teal and crème white, patterned with perforations and rusted texture. The artist's name and date of creation have been cut into a small steel garment label secured to the collar.
