Back Home Again, 2022

Digital illustration on wood with resin

Lucie Rice’s artwork was inspired by the rich history of the Indianapolis 500 and references iconic landmarks and symbols of the race, the speedway, and the host city of Indianapolis. Layers of race imagery and pattern capture the energy of the experience.  The juxtaposition of the visual elements and text move the viewer’s eye through the art, mirroring the movement on the track. Gold and red were chosen to represent the traditions of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, while the blues throughout are a nod to the Indiana state flag.
