Speeding Sculpture: The Art of Dennis Hoyt

As a creative person, coming face to face with a blank medium; a piece of paper or an empty digital page, for instance, is often the most daunting part of the creative process. But for Dennis Hoyt a single blank block of wood and a lifetime love of cars are all the inspiration he needs to create an absolutely astonishing work of classic motorsport sculpture.
He’s been doing it for the past thirty years, capturing speed and drama in a way which is truly compelling and exciting from a single block of wood, which he reinforces with metal as he works.
It’s impressive not just because of the captivating sense of speed and power, but also in scale. Sculptures can be almost larger than life, reaching twelve feet long and taking six months to a full year to create.
