The alchemy of carburation

Genesis, acrylic on canvas, 1200 x 1500mm, 2010 … The alchemy of carburation

A painting based on the breathing and the alchemical nature of air, fuel and fire of my motorcycle, a 1987, Yamaha FZX750

The FZX 750 is a concept bike based on the V-Max and is pretty rare, I think that there are only about 40 of them in Australia.. Needless to say, I love it, love the sound and feel of it’s acceleration.. The Genesis engine was developed for it and the FZ 750 and went on to be used in the YZF-R1
