Sculpting industrial cast-offs into iconic Kimono shapes, there's a great basic tension in Gordon Chandler's work that comes from the tactile differences between his materials and subjects. The contrasts are the natural outcome of his Duchampian use of found materials. "I have a very practical bent," he says, "I use things of very little value and elevate them. I study the objects that we decorate our lives with and reconfigure them in my own language." The 55-gallon drum is a container used worldwide to deliver a wide variety of materials. They are widely recognized, ubiquitous symbols of commerce. Once delivered and emptied of their original contents, they are used for a variety of different outcomes. The discarded steel drum bears a history of wear and travel on its surface. From these containers, Chandler chooses the ones with the most intriguing composition and patinas. For him, there is often some reference to the patterned silk fabric of traditional robes. The process from here is like origami. First the barrel is cleaned. Then he cuts the two ends out, cuts it the long way and flatten the hollow cylinder. Left is a rectangle. Through a series of cuts, folds, and a little welding the garment becomes apparent.

标志性的和服带有工业切割造型,来自于材料和主题之间触觉上的差异成为了Gordon Chandler的作品中的基本矛盾。这些对比是他对所发现的材料进行Duchampian式使用的自然产物。 “我的弯曲非常的实际,“他说,”我用的材料很不值钱,但我提高他们的价值。我研究用来装点生活的对象, 并且用我自己的语言来重新定义。“ 55加仑的桶是一个全球广泛使用的容器,用于承载品种丰富的各式材料。他们得到广泛认可,已经成为无处不在的商业象征。当桶完成最初装载的内容运输任务而被清空后,被各自利用产生不同的结果。 废弃的钢桶表面承载了磨损和运输的历史。从这些容器中,Chandler选择最迷人和铜绿的造型。对他而言,经常有一些可以联系到传统长袍的丝绸面料图案。从这里开始,过程类似折纸。首先,要清洗桶壁;然后,将两端切除,纵向抛剖开将整个空心桶展平, 呈长方形。然后通过一系列剪裁,折叠和些许的焊接,才制成了服饰。
