New Work by Nina Maguire

Nina Maguire My New York, 2009 acrylic on board 12 x 12 inches

Nina Maguire has created a unique painting which is a compilation of seven of her most familiar New York City scenes including Washington Square Park, Brooklyn’s Promenade, East Side Drive, Central Park and the Flatiron building. It is a painting of personal and professional reminiscence as she looks back at her love of the City over the years and the ways she has found pleasure portraying it in her art. Titled My New York, the painting is composed in a windows theme, with miniature variations of her paintings separated into panes. These windows into the artist’s world reveal an intimacy and emotion derived from having lived in the New York City environs all her life. The theme is complemented by Maguire’s frame choice, with the painting mounted under glass in a contemporary thin-line frame with a gold-leaf edge.
