Wheels and heels: David Drebin plays with our imagination

This race between a Ford GT40 and a long-legged female could only have one outcome – but what’s the reason? A driver fleeing a mistress that won’t take the hint? Or is it, perhaps, the owner in pursuit of her stolen car?

It could be either, but the work simply entitled ‘Wheels and Heels’ by Canadian artist and photographer David Drebin is part of a series named ‘Love and Other Stories’, which depicts solitary women in various stages of a love affair. As such, it seems likely the long-legged brunette’s relationship is in its closing stages, but the beauty of art is in its interpretation – and we much prefer the thought of a female-owned GT40. Let’s hope her car is recovered soon…
