The power of man and the power of nature meet in this dynamic and exciting work, which conjures the illusion of vast spatial depth, violent perspectival recession and mechanical speed from the flat surface of the paper. The wide road – the M11 motorway – on which the spectator also seems to be driving, abruptly recedes, curving round to the low Cambridgeshire horizon and sucking in the attention, pitting the spectator in a race with the car to the right as it too hurtles towards the horizon and the streak of light there, its brake lights fuzzy in the fine rain. A brilliant contemporary reimagining of road paintings by artists such as Pissarro.
