Dreams Of Speed 3- Work by Tom Kenyon

The story of the famous Kenyon Motor Company continues thanks to Tom Kenyon. The Kenyon Motor Company raced on the Bonneville Salt Flats periodically from the late 1940s through the 1960s. Well, that is what Kenyon would like you to believe. Here are the 'race cars' with invented artifacts, pretend magazine articles, prints, collages and a 'historic film' as proof of the racing exploits of the Kenyon Motor Company. The artist is inspired by cars, car magazines, car culture and family history. He combines models, paintings, drawings, collages, linoleum block prints and a video to inform us about the imaginary racing exploits of the real Kenyon Motor Company.
