BMW E39 M5 S62 Art
I am fascinated by complex mechanical machines, their intricate and interconnected parts, each shaped to dictate a function in the collective whole. I started by taking engine part diagrams for the BMW S62 motor, simplifying them – only to assemble them in a large functional subunit of the engine. By keeping the design to lines and simple shading, the individual components are what draw the emphasis.
Individuality and Quality
( The press these prints are made on)
Having access to a wide array of printing options, I opted for one that would make each piece unique in its own way. These prints are made on a press that predates most humans alive, itself a complex mechanical piece of art. The design has been etched out of a sheet of magnesium, yet with every roller, the tiny variations in ink loading assure that no two prints are identical.
These are printed on thick 8″ x 10″ paper and are individually numbered
