redline paintings /1996 - 2012
Guy Overfelt has been working on his 1977 Trans AM - again. Never satisfied with the performance and structural modifications he has already made to the car, here he gives us proof that there may be no outer limits to his hot rod obsession. Going beyond the fetishized racecar itself, Overfelt presents the residue of 14 years of interaction with the machine as evidenced through the mountains of soiled red, shop rags laying around his studio / shop. Here, he presents the neatly stretched mini-canvasses on ready-made strecher bars as a lovely sea of sanguine castaways ; oil on rag in the literal, Actionist sense of the words.
