Stunning original artwork by Quincy-based artist Jennifer Bock-Nelson that measures 24" x 18" and is made of oil on cradled panel and was created in 2009.
"Mickey D’s is one of 4 pieces left from a long running series of 32 paintings entitled Drive. The series is an exploration of landscape in motion. The paintings reside in the transitional space between the strange and the familiar. Recognizable landmarks or objects lend structure to the otherwise atmospheric depiction of warped space. The juxtaposition of the natural landscape with the artificially colored man-made structures, signs, lights, and road markers magnifies the sense of altered reality.
This piece is on Broadway, the closest approximation to a busy city street in Quincy. The iconic Golden Arches bob in rhythm with the bright blue, Dodge Neon in front of me. I am commuting from my college job across the river to my other job where little kids wait for me to be mom. This precious interlude is the quiet space belonging to me.
