The Automotive Gallery

Gilchrist is a serious automotive fan being involved with racing machinery from an early age. This gallery holds a few of his images inspired by his love of automobiles. They are classic Gilchrist, boldly graphic and beautifully composed. These low resolution Net images cand do these prints justice. Click on the images or titles for enlargements.




#902. "Vintage Racer," 11" by 14" Fine Arts Silver Gelatin Print

This offering is an 11 inch by 14 inch Fine Arts Silver Gelatin Print picturing a vintage race car at speed. It was captured at Lorain County Speedway, Ohio on July 28, 1979. On that day the Speedway hosted a Vintage Race Car Meet featuring numerous antique racing vehicles. The hand crafted print is titled and signed by the artist in black ink. This low resolution Net image doesn't do the print justice (great feeling of speed).

Here we see the speedster at the end of the back straight-away just setting up for the high banked turn. The car is beautifully restored and the driver, complete with period driving suit, is showing a lot of body English, streamer flying in the wind (see detail). All the details and notes about this race have been lost and as a result we are unable to identify the driver or the make of the car. Can anyone help us with details? What ever it is and who ever he is, They're very cool. This great image (very decorative) makes a great gift for any automotive enthusiast.

This beautifully composed image, entitled "Cruise Texture #13," is hand printed and signed by the artist. The image size is approximately 6 inches by 9 inches, printed on 8 inch by 10 inch Ilford double weight paper. This low resolution Net image doesn't do the print justice (extremely sharp with rich blacks and great highlight detail).

This image is one of a Gilchrist series celebrating the forms and shapes of Hot Rod street machines. This is a beautiful street machine and an equally wonderful photograph. Charles used the nose of this very modified 50's custom to create this dramatically simple composition.

#909: "Flames" - 8' x 10' Fine Arts S G Print

Here's another beautifully composed full frame 35 mm image entitled "Flames," hand printed and signed by the artist. The image size is approximately 6 inches by 9 inches, printed on 8 inch by 10 inch Ilford double weight paper. This low resolution Net image doesn't do the print justice (extremely sharp with rich blacks and great highlight detail).

This sensitively designed and rather abstracted image is one of a Gilchrist series celebrating the forms and shapes of Hot Rods. Flames have become a major symbol of the Hot Rod phenomenon. These are painted on a black 1933 Willys Pro Outlaw Coupe and Gilchrist captured them perfectly.

#910: "Chevy Shade" - 8' x 10' Fine Arts S G Print

#911: "Wing" - 8' x 10' Fine Arts S G Print

Here’s an relatively new (2002) Gilchrist composition simply entitled “Wing.” It is beautifully simple and yet powerfully graphic, a big wing in a big sky with just a hint of the race car. The invention of the Automotive Wing and its resulting down force, has revolutionized racing. In fact, the beginning of this modern era of automotive racing could be defined by the first use of wings on race cars. This dramatic Gilchrist creation illustrates the phenomenon perfectly.
