Arguably the greatest F1 driver to date, Ayrton Senna (21 March 1960 – 1 May 1994)

“These things bring you to reality as to how fragile you are; at the same moment you are doing something that nobody else is able to do. The same moment that you are seen as the best, the fastest and somebody that cannot be touched, you are enormously fragile. Because in a split second, it’s gone. These two extremes are feelings that you don’t get every day. These are all things which contribute to -how can I say?- knowing yourself deeper and deeper. These are the things that keep me going.”

A life that inspired this first venture into sculpture work, a personality that lent itself perfectly to the creative process. Six months acquiring the techniques through trial and error, produced a piece comprised of 27 seperate castings. Kinetic form and motion conveyed through silver on bronze.

Displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed drivers hotel and Earl of March’s office. One edition as F1 Racing magazine competition prize.

 

The sculpture conveys the excitement and dynamic of speed through the material’s mercurial flow.
