About the artwork

Forgotten Heroes

They rest beside the highways and by-ways, in junkyards and front yards, long-abandoned trucks and old jalopies, rusting relics of the American Dream. These vehicles once made things possible. They expanded horizons. They created opportunities where previously there were few. They connected farms to towns and towns to cities. Like the trains before them, they opened up a continent. They were once the pride of Detroit big, bold and brassy, eye-catching gas-guzzlers, unambiguous statements from an age when exuberant design triumphed over mundane considerations such as wind resistance and fuel efficiency. And now? Decades on, their original owners long dead, they have come full circle. They have become works of art once again, automotive sculptures, objects of unexpected beauty scattered randomly across the land. Over time the elements have worn through the layers of paintwork, turning bonnets into complex, multi-coloured canvases no human artist could hope to replicate.
