Not My Fathers Oldsmobile

Not My Father’s Oldsmobile by Steven Boksenbaum. 8 x 10 x 1

In Not My Father’s Oldsmobile, a classic car passes through an intersection. The dynamic radial composition invites the observer into a scene typical of contemporary American life. Yet, the muted colors suggests a certain emotional distance from the scene, as if to warn us away from nostalgia: this is not your father’s Oldsmobile, and it is only passing through.
