Up for auction is a 30" x 40" original acrylic painting of the legendary Porsche 962C. The Porsche 962 is a sports-prototype racing car built by Porsche as a replacement for the 956 and designed mainly to comply with IMSA's GTP regulations. The 962 was introduced at the end of 1984, from which it quickly became successful through private owners while having a remarkably long-lived career, with some examples still proving competitive into the mid-1990s.
Canadian artist Malcolm Fletcher is a bush pilot, lifelong painter/illustrator/designer, and vintage air-cooled mechanic. Malcolm's work stems from deep love of automobila, vintage aviation, and more specifically the exceptional cars of Porsche. The painting up for auction is of his favorite race car which has just come out of restoration. Legendary endurance racing champion, the #17 Porsche 962C.
Malcolm has chosen to paint in a formal style scene that captures the eye and the imagination while still remaining true to the car's iconic form. Absolute realism isn't his goal but a creative and aesthetically pleasing work that can be enjoyed for many years that captures the essence of these cars at a single moment in time. "I paint in a very long process that involves many minor changes and tweaks over a period of several years. Paintings are often turned upside down to sort out the balance of individual areas. They get moved around and often stored for long periods until the inspiration hits. The paintings have evolved over the last number of years as I work out and refine my craft but am confident and pleased to present this piece for auction."
