About the sculpture:

THE INSPIRATION – 50 years ago, drivers Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep won Le Mans in their Martini Porsche 917k at a record speed and distance, only beaten twice since! The car’s secret advantage came from its unique Magnesium-alloy chassis: super lightweight yet fragile, and notably hard to weld. This secret is celebrated in Ambrose’s sculpture.

THE SCULPTURE – Jonny Ambrose’s digitally designed sculpture is a stylised, half scale Porsche 917 in tubular carbon fibre and aluminium, connected by custom 3d printed ‘organic’ joints. The polygonal 2.5m long design, with detailed representative chassis, creates a bold and playful 3d maze of interweaving lines to look into and wonder at.

THE LOOK – The half scale chassis is portrayed by aluminium tubes, not welded but uniquely connected by bespoke ‘3d printed’ joints, all individually designed and constructed by the artist. With a carbon fibre ‘body’ also connected by black 3d printed joints, the result is a lightweight, fragile looking sculptural maze of lines to lose yourself in.

‘PORSCHE 956’ SOLD

Jonny Ambrose 2019

This version is a unique artwork. 1 of 1 only. 2019

Walnut hardwood, Carbon Fibre, Obeche hardwood, Staron Composite base.

520 x 140 x 60 mm approximate.

Inspiration:

Deliberately angular portrayal of the iconic and successful Le Mans winner in the 1980s. A timeless race car design, with it’s long flowing tail and massive underside venturi tunnels creating downforce and trubulance, shown by the contrasting shards behind it.

The angular nature of this piece is in reference to my past career in the Videogames industry, where years ago, creating life like models from low polygons was a real skill to describe a curved surface with as few vertex points as possible. Hence the shapes seen in this work.
