Stefan Rohrer (1968) was already fascinated by the shapes and colors of cars when he was a young boy. Being an artist he uses cars not only for their aesthetics and functionality, but he plays with the meaning they represent in our modern society: speed, prestige, power.
His objects seems to shoot past our eyes at great speed, stretching like in comics. The lines and movement produce a fascinating play with our perception. The moment of collision at a crash is shown. Wheels, Stearing wheels, seats and other car parts are flung forward. He seems to warn us for the dangers of fast living.
