Debra Wenlock is an artist who has been resident in Northern Ireland since 1987. Cars of one vintage or another figure largly in her life and naturally, in her painting. She now paints overlooking a garage housing an Austin Seven, a Fiat Topolino and a Tornado Typhoon.
This book, which represents her most ambitious collection of motoring paintings to date, is a delight on several levels. The artist's style offers a different interpretation of motoring subjects and in particular, her use of light is noteworthy. The accompanying text, although sparce, gives just the right 'feel' for the series of Tourist Trophy races held on the challenging Ards circuit.
Paintings, text and an unusual layout for a motoring book (or is it an art book?) combine to make this an addition to any motoring library which will be treasured.
