Car Feature Series
The car is important as it is such a
big part of all our lives. The "Car Feature" series continues
the love and fascination of cars and reveals the front
view of old cars.
This series of paintings came
about from observations while stuck at traffic lights
and extensive periods behind the wheel, noticing that
the oncoming cars appeared to take on a human like quality.
These cars had a face and character – the headlights
as eyes and the bumper bar a mouth. The form of the object
easily identifiable, simplified and earthy colours are
used giving the paintings a distinctive look.
