Over the years the motor car has featured as an element in a work of art. The rather twee program of painting BMW cars is an example; so is the forest of half-buried Cadillacs, but none of them are in quite the same class as Mudgee Sculptor Peter Brooks’ little van.
It is a work in progress and is changing almost on a daily basis. Rubber ducks come and go, the passengers change, the colour scheme is in a constant state of flux. Peter dresses flamboyantly and colorfully, paints his camera and bicycle in camouflage colors, and works wonders with recycled soup spoons. He also has the most photographed vehicle in the Central West.
