About the paintings
Nina Boesch's acrylic paintings are whimsical visual interpretations of children's book quotes. The spin: Each quote is taken out of its original context and given new meaning in the artworks, disconnecting them from their original medium and audience.
Nina's continued interest in collage art has worked its way into her paintings as well. Each painting contains found documents such as technical drawings from old printed manuals, NYC parking violation tickets, old magazine ads dating, data punch-cards from the 70's, etc.. Each incorporated document supports the re-interpretation of the quote the artwork is based on.
