NASDAQ Entrepreneurial Spirit

Signed "M. Gaylor" (lower right)
Oil on canvas

NASDAQ’s famous electronic display in Times Square shines with its bright neon hue in this oil on canvas by the American painter Marcia Gaylor. The legendary New York City corner is engulfed by the brilliant lights and presence of the current commodity culture and electronic age. NASDAQ’s luminous signage demands attention at the center of the canvas, while financial numbers glow on the displays in the building's interior. As a whole, the work is a stunning example of the artist's Wall Street series, which celebrates the financial institutions and legacy of the United States.

Founded in 1971, NASDAQ was the first electronic stock market in the world. Since the market does not operate with a traditional trading floor, the exchange built the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York’s Times Square in 1999 in order to create a commercial marketing presence. Today, the studio broadcasts current financial information utilizing a complex system of data feeds to provide dynamic real-time data 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The site is truly an icon of the financial markets in New York, and Gaylor's work pays homage to its presence and influence.

Based in southern California, Marcia Gaylor is renowned for her historical scenes that capture the New York City and Chicago stock market trading floors and vibrant financial districts. Before pursuing painting as a career, she earned an MBA from the University of Southern California, and her financial background clearly influenced the direction of her art later in her life. Most of her paintings focus on the economic history of the United States as she captures the financial heart of the country's largest cities. The result is a body of work that stands in colorful tribute to the economy and the power of capital. Today, she remains an active member of the California Art Club, Oil Painters of America, Women Painters of America, as well as the American Impressionist Society.
