In this unique glimpse into a gone-by era of classic motorsports, a Ferrari is poised ready to race. A haze of smoke engulfs the vehicle, epitomising the feeling of drama and anticipation before hitting the gas, and hearing the roar of the engine. You can almost smell the aroma of burning rubber.
Overlayed with a thick glossy resin, Ferrari Ignition has a reflective and tactile surface, which gleams as it catches the light. Paul has scratched into the rich black details of the dashboard, revealing the silvery shine of the aluminium and the metallic quality of the car. An amber glow of light reminiscent of racing car headlights creates a focal point and signals the imminence of the race ahead.
I really enjoy the unpredictability of painting with resin. With a mind of its own and limited working time, I am forced to work intuitively, often resulting in exceptionally stunning effects.
