REVHEAD: the motorsport art of Eamon O’Toole is a new exhibit at Ipswich Art Gallery.
You may have seen my short post earlier in the week, here —–> Hot head (I love those pics!)
All of these shots are taken with my fixed 50mm f/1.4 lens, so apologies if I couldn’t get ‘wide’ or ‘close’ enough, it’s the only one I had with me. I think it gives a nice perspective to a lot of the shots.
I was really quite surprised by this exhibit – I am not really a motorsport fan, so I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did (and didn’t even take my whole camera bag with me!). It is actually quite fantastic – and considering that most of the Eamon O’Toole works are mostly made of hand-moulded plastic and enamel paint – staggeringly complex and impressive.
I think this one was my favourite:
These sculptures are full-size, including this one:
There were also some working drawings on display:
Which is pretty cool, when you have the actual final sculpture on display next to it:
I enjoyed these stacked sculptures of wheels too:
Some fun sculptures of parts too:
It was a fun and surprising exhibit!
