The Blair Thurman Supermodels installation is illuminating. American artist Thurman captures American car culture and childhood nostalgia in this series. These "super" models are inspired by the stickers found in model car kits that apply to the finished product. Thurman found the patterns of the stickers enlightening, and took to using their outlines to create each of his pieces.
The cars recreate the American myth of bright lights and big city, conquering both at tremendous speed. The neon gives the illusion that the cars are in motion speeding through galleries. The gallery walls become empty roads to be driven over.
Whether you participate and appreciate car culture or not, the Blair Thurman Supermodels installation is a worthwhile sight to see.
