CAROLYN MONASTRA, BURNED OUT CAR, EAST BASTROP, TEXAS, USA, 2011 (2011),
Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, a group exhibition featuring paintings and photographs by Charles Buckley, John Conn, Victor Honigsfeld, Valeri Larko, Beñat Iglesias López, Carolyn Monastra, Maria Passarotti and Ruth Shively.
The car is so much more than a machine that moves people from point A to point B. It is a symbol of freedom, an emblem of America’s pioneering spirit, a status symbol, a mark of one’s wealth, and sometimes, a sad substitute for a home or a temporary place to lay one’s head. In addition to driving (pun intended) the nation’s economy and commerce, the car has played an important role in American culture – high and low—making appearances in advertisements, pop songs, film and fine art. This celebration of the culture of the car in America will run from January 12-February 24, 2017.
