Robin Bark - Jaguar XK120 HKV500
On the 30th May 1949, the Jaguar XK120 HKV500 was taken to the Jabekke-Ostend Highway in Belgium where Jaguar chief test driver, Ron 'Soapy' Sutton achieved a speed of 132.596mph.
This Robin Bark model of the famous car is cast in solid, marine grade aluminium, and fettled and finished by hand. All Robin's pieces have a clean simplicity and are very tactile, inviting the viewer to pick them up and handle them.
The form, movement and sense of speed are revealed as the highly polished surface interacts with the light.There are no plinths or stands, these pieces stand on their own and 'speak' for themselves.
They are produced in very small batches and are very collectable. The hand processes emphasise their individual qualities and each piece is signed and numbered by the artist. They are presented in a hand finished presentation/display box.
Robin studied Art for more than a decade, and has worked in advertising and freelance design as well as teaching and lecturing Design at college and university, including at Goldsmiths' University, London. Fascinated by cars and machines, he has drawn, painted and played with them for as long as he can remember.
Size : 17.5cm
