People get their artistic rocks off in all kinds of ways… landscapes, abstracts, LOL Katz. My favourite piece of art is a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with The Book of Revelations scrawled into its black paint by an artist using a nail.
Technical Stuff: Taking a camera into a gallery is usually against the rules. Funny enough most artists don’t want their work photographed or reproduced. But in large galleries there are usually some exhibits which are cool to shoot. For the others I suggest waiting until the security guard leaves the room. I used a real camera and real film (400ASA) for this shot.
This is an installation at the National Gallery of Canada. The artist had eight paintings surrounding the car, each one was a vision of the Apocalypse. But all I saw was Burt Reynolds driving 300 horses as the vanguard of The End Of Days. I don’t even know the artist’s name, and I’m pretty sure “The Apocalypse Car” is not even the name of this work.
