It’s a frightening snapshot-in-time on a bright sunny day. Askevold writes that “The car is accelerating into the figure. The symbolism is the loss of control in one’s life, or a reflection in one’s dream state.” We’ve probably all had that dream before.
Askevold adds that “The license plate is a little inside joke I hid inside the painting. It’s the penal code for vehicular manslaughter.”
