Piece description from the artist
This one is about my love of cars, cartoons and weirdness in general. It is in part an homage to the late Philip Guston, hence the "P.G." in the title. His mark-making is imitated on the road and the cigarettes for which he was famous for smoking and putting in his representational paintings. The lightning bolts? Uh, shock absorbers!
Steve FrenkeI was born and raised in Detroit, earning a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

The settings of Steve’s artwork take place in an imaginary world inspired by memories, daydreams and his curiosity about the world around us. Steve has created almost five hundred unique paintings, drawings and watercolors since 1991. Photography has also been a lifelong passion. His camera work, over five decades, exceeds ten thousand images.
