“I am interested in touching gold by the eye. Luxury is the ultimate shelter for neurotics. Gold glance calms down very effectively... Almost as well as glittery gold leafs of ancient icons. Shine blinds and makes things go smoothly”
Formula 1, this world of luxury and high speed is the legacy of the twentieth century. What is the prospect of curcuits in our time of conspicuous consumption - becoming a place of future electric competitions or existing as glamorous ruins of the last century with its love for industry and development?
People created thousands of camps for sport and recreation during their history . For now, there are many of these places almost abandoned during low season. Perhaps the reason for these constructions can be just beauty, not competitions, not everything in this world obliged to have function. How bright things, how gold... We can let them exile as memories of our civilization. These series depict different F1 tracks developed by artistic sensibility.
It is worth to say several words about technique in what these pieces are made. It is hybridization of printed 3d renders and traditional oil painting. Some parts of them are painted, some others - printed. Not every time it’s easy to find the border. Borders, paths taken, run-off-roads and turns - all together they created both form and content of these artworks.
