  • i love these because i hate cars

    • lapetitefaon

      Ahaha. Love them too! Mostly because I like how 2-5 are ridiculously cool looking paintings. Cars are kind of lame.

  • I once owned a jeep like the first one, I totaled it, and thats what it looked like….

  • it looks like a Geo Tracker

  • killer

  • Anthony

    you only showed his cars! those are his most boring ones, I love the ones of his son. the hamburger and skeletons are pretty cool too. he does paintings from canvases out onto walls as well. also semi-symmetrical diptychs. love the thick oil look, I based one of my works on his. it’s more difficult to pull off than it looks!
    nice to see an australian represented, we don’t have a lot of (good) famous artists, but we’re not that bad considering.

  • Melting and Twisted!

    Absolutely awesome. Shiny, loved and fussed over high tech speed machines transformed in an instant into immobile pieces of junk. So stationary, so undesirable. But the paint beautifully encapsulates the dynamics and energy of the last moment of existence as it were.
