To celebrate the career of F1 driver Jenson Button, Channel 4 commissioned former F1 race team chief mechanic Alastair Gibson, who now produces works of art under the studio moniker Carbon Art 45, to produce him a sculpture.
Made from a wide range of car parts from Button’s racing history, Gibson created a manta ray-type creature complete with rotating geared plinth.
It’s an interesting way of encapsulating a career within a sculpture, and its very personal nature (Gibson was chief mechanic at BAR Racing when Button won the World Championship) make this a work of automotive art without making it representing a car.
