Boston Back Bay

Piece description from the artist

Back Bay is one of Boston's oldest neighborhoods and has some wonderful examples of 19th century architecture. Back Bay is known for its historical buildings and for being the home of the Boston Public Library and Copley Square shopping district. This image shows the area up to the Boston Commons in the top right, the Harvard Bridge, crossing the Charles River, leading to the MIT campus in the top left, and the Massachusetts Turnpike running through the center of the image. The Fenway Victory Gardens are in the bottom left of the image. The large triangle in the center is the Prudential Shopping Center, and the rows of streets towards the upper right are Storrow Drive to Boylston. This is the area where the famous Newbury Street is located. The area in the bottom right of the map is a part of Boston's South End.

This is a TurningArt exclusive limited edition print available in editions of 100.

About Jennifer Carland

Hendersonville, TN

Jennifer Carland is an artist who works with mixed media to create abstracted versions of aerial views and city maps. The work that she creates is loosely based on real geography and is abstracted so that the shapes, line, and color of the maps are altered to create a unique piece of artwork, showing an artistic representation of a real place.

Jennifer works with a variety of artistic materials and is fascinated by aerial views of the world around her. Each finished piece that she creates is of a map carefully selected for its geographical attributes and visual appeal then altered to create a unique piece of artwork. The finished product is a combination of hand-drawn and digitally altered images with many layers of colors and textures. The focus of her work is on interpreting the lines and shapes of a city map and changing the purpose of a map from utilitarian to conceptual. She intends to make the viewer think about their own place in relation to what is around them and appreciate the beauty in both the built and natural environments.
