About This Artwork: When I was a little kid, my dad drove a red Dodge Dart with a white vinyl top. The family would go places together in it, but my family was chaotic and dysfunctional. I used to have bad dreams where I would be stuck in the backseat of the car while it was speeding down the street and no one else was in the car. No one would be driving and I was left to feel helpless. Now I think that's a little bit funny even though it sounds kinda sad.
