This bold exhibition includes more than fifty-five paintings by fourteen leading photorealist artists—A. D. Cook, Randy Ford, Allan Gorman, Marc G. Jones, Cheryl Kelley, Richard Lewis, Lory Lockwood, Bob Petillo, Kris Preslan, Joseph Santos, Ken Scaglia, John E. Schaeffer, Guenevere Schwien, and Harold Zabady—all of whom specialize in automobile and motorcycle imagery.
Through their work, they share their enthusiasm for the sensuous line and shimmering surfaces of motorized vehicles. The luster one finds in chrome ornamentation and trim, reflective side moldings, and, in fact, on all of the glistening, reflective surfaces of cars and motorcycles is the chief characteristic of their work. A subject was never better suited to a particular style of painting, as this celebration of motorized transportation proves.
LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting was produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C.—David J. Wagner, Ph.D., Curator/Tour Director.
