Cars draw memories of people and childhood. Cars represent a time and place and evoke memories of journeys past.
I have always been a lover of the classic car, previously owning many vintage cars including my favourite, a 1958 Mark 2 Zephyr. From a young age, I spent a lot of time around classic cars. Over the years, my father owned a Chrysler Valiant with continental kit, a Black Ford Customline, a Dodge Pick Up Truck, that had a CB radio in it, his calling name, ‘The Blonde Dodge’. Apparently his first car was a Prefect Ute he brought for $10.00.
These paintings draw from memories of your first car, the family car, the car your dad had to sell when you were little….
Cars is a design line that allows you to re-associate yourself with these memories and introduce new conversations back into your home.
The original designs are hand painted, using monochromatic colours and simple graphic representation, giving the works a signature look.
