‘Holsman’ from ‘Seasonal Veteran and Vintage Cars in Colour’ by David Ferry
Signed and numbered 2/10 limited edition print in white glazed frame.
‘Holsman’ from ‘Seasonal Veteran and Vintage Cars in Colour’ by David Ferry is a signed limited edition Archive Digital Print in an edition of 10. Bright, shiny motorcars garlanded with fragrant blooms are the subjects of some of Ferry’s most recent montages. The car, a symbol of modernism, is also a toxic intruder. In apocalyptic science fiction movies, the inventions of man fail to achieve their promise and are eventually left to the mercies of nature. This is the fate of the vintage cars in Ferry’s images, but it is the polite English gardens that claim these machines rather than tangled overgrowth of the untameable wilderness. The message is seemingly that tradition wins over progress and that modernisation has its limits.
