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.
Wilks depicts herself in a downbeat time in her painting “Seeing red.” Frances Wilkes subverts the idea that racing cars are a man’s thing since there are no women Formula 1 drivers in real life.
