Artist Cheryl Kelley captures the enduring allure and badass-ness of the classic, all-American muscle car in this series of hyper-realistic paintings, based on high-resolution photographs of old Chevrolets. Kelley scours vintage car shows for them and then puts pen to paper, capturing the gleaming loveliness of an American car that knows just how good it looks. From the artist: "These big engine cars, seemingly fueled by raw testosterone, were ironically most definitely feminine in form. As a twentieth century American icon, the muscle car is remembered for its speed and power. My paintings are about the feminine sensuality of the surfaces, the Mel Ramos-like perfection of female form."
