“You are walking down the street when you notice a black Mercedes with blacked-out windows draw up to the kerbside, the rear door opens and two burly men step out. At this moment it dawns on you that this visit is for you, but before you can react you are bundled into the backseat - maybe never to been seen again...”
That was the narrative I used when painting this image - a classic 1970's Spy Movie set in the back street of Berlin only this car is yellow and has a different story to tell.
This former beast is slowly being broken apart by nature with mosses and leaf debris creeping up over the shell and devouring it, breaking it down into the raw elements soon to have disappeared from sight and memory.
This special limited edition mixed media print includes hand engraved glass which picks out and highlights part of the light reflections adding a further dimension to the image, which moves and follows you around the room as you 'spy' it from different angles.
