Gayle Anderson explored the newest exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum. It’s “Arsham Auto Motive.” You’ve never seen an art and car exhibit such as this.
New York-based Artist Daniel Arsham is famous for his paintings and his “eroded” works of art among them cars! His version of modern artifacts are created from geological materials such as sand, quartz, and selenite, appearing fossilized as if they have just been discovered after being buried for ages.
Included in this mesmerizing exhibition is a selection of Arsham vehicles. Highlights include sculptures of the Eroded 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback, 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster, 2018 Eroded Ferrari and 2022 Blue Calcite Eroded Porsche 911, evoking Arsham’s signature “unearthed” aesthetic by utilizing elements like Selenite, Quartz, Pyrite, and Volcanic Ash. Debuting in the exhibit are the Selenite Eroded BMW Poster, Amethyst Eroded Porsche 911 Poster, and Ash and Pyrite Eroded Mustang Poster.
