Lunch on Sparks
About this artwork
In an impressionistic style, artist Maurice Dionne paints a busy mall filled with pedestrians on Sparks Street in Ottawa, Canada. During lunch, many office workers go out for a walk or stop for lunch at one of the many outdoor patios, shares Maurice. He captures the constant hustle and bustle of the cityscape at its busiest hour. The mood is of dŽtente, away from the office, however, we note that everyone has a smartphone in hand. Is everyone continuously plugged in? suggests Maurice.
