The automobile represents power, freedom, and fun, combining phallic thrust and feminine curves. Iconic images of classic cars reveal texture and sensuality. Luminous and reflective, the surface of a car becomes a view into another world. Images caught and revealed in smooth shiny metal draw our attention to a realm of fantasy, revealing the depths of the world. Using familiar images, such as a 58 Chevy or a 59 Edsel , these paintings evoke a sense of wonder and reverie. This collection emphasizes the play of light, a shimmering luminescence amplified in metallic splendor, guiding our vision to the sublime. The ordinary becomes extraordinary. The mundane becomes the archetypal, the platonic world of the forms.
