A portfolio of 12 classic automobiles
Fascinated by the iconic qualities of the automobile, these vibrant paintings and prints are a tribute to the car as an object of uncritical devotion. I capture a broad selection of the arsenal of personal motorized mobility. Our environment is tailored to the machine, the cars are everywhere. The automobile is visually fused together with whatever we see. This is reflected in the angles, perspectives and background patterns, in contrast to the delicate organic matter surrounding them.
Machine Overdrive Panels
During the process of printing the Machine Overdrive edition I printed numerous proofs and test prints. These test prints have become the basis for the Machine Overdrive panels. Individual prints are mounted on MDF panels and supported with a wooden frame. The prints are individually printed. Shapes, drips and splashes of added color tie the individual prints together. The panels are finished with three coats of high gloss varnish.
