SENNA KING / BURIED, 2015
Black and white inkjet prints on copy shop paper.
A depiction of Ayrton Senna's Williams Renault FW16 in stages of life and death. SENNA KING uses a collage of religious and racing regalia to glorify but also to commemorate. The ubiquitous hand-drawn outline conforms to the contour of the car both protecting and immortalizing it as another possible interpretation of this form- both the car itself and all that is carried with it. SENNA BURIED is surrounded by imagery and symbolism associated with death. The hand drawn shape is the human condition and a halo. The crash is the suddenly surreal loss of all value.
