The Artist

The London based painter Frances Wilks developed an obsession for the world of cars and the color red. In a very incarnated figurative style, she sketches portraits, typical scenes, and settings, or details of the world of Formula 1. Wilks shows us that one can always hijack the codes of what we could consider masculine archetypes (like the world of Formula 1) and play with them.


Frances Wilks’ painting “Con-Rod” depicts the well-known Ferrari logo as well as a connecting rod. At first glance, the viewer might guess this is a close-up of the hood with a tool left on it. Through the color, the shape of the tool, and the masculinity inspired by Ferrari, the artist seems to reclaim what is usually associated with male desire.
