Michael J Fox Nike Abstract by Dan Lacey

Now established as one of my favourite artists, here is Dan Lacey's latest work.
Last week Nike announced they will be  releasing replicas of Marty McFly's trainers in Back to the Future 2. 

Lacey's painting is a response.

"The shoe is symbolic of Parkinson's Disease. It is merged to Michaels' head, it blocks his view of the future. It does not envelope the left side of his face which represents the past.  The pancake which I use in many of my paintings is here symbolic of Michael's thinking process.  It rests upon an abstraction."
