Acrylic on PVC
243.8 x 304.8 cm
Kirstin Baker’s Big Bang Vroom revamps the glamour of motor sport as a composition of eloquent design. Using the mimetic qualities of paint, greys smear and sputter across her smooth PVC surface replicating the burnt rubber of skidding tires and swells of tarry smoke. Baker juxtaposes these spontaneous gestures against the meticulous graphics of the abstracted car and grandstand, accentuating the tension between precision, control, speculation, and danger.
