John Ketchell is mad about motors, motorsport, and speed in general. And he possesses a gift for expressing what I think we all feel about cars and racing and sharing it with the world through the medium of paint.
His work combines a clear talent for the technical aspects of painting, such as perspective, form and composition, with an eye for capturing colour, action and speed.
It’s abstract, but not unidentifiable; just risque enough to make it challenging and exciting, and to elicit a response.
And it’s brilliant. It captures the thrill of racing; the machinery; the knife-edge dance of a close pass; the speed; the abuse of physics; the atmosphere, excitement and energy, and it does it with the same sense of spectacle and joy which the best motorsport events seem to produce.
We love it, and think you will too. Check it out above and below, and make sure to head to John’s website here for more and to commission works of your own. Originals can be ordered here, and limited edition prints can be found here.
