The series “Summertime”
The following quote perfectly brings out the inspiration for this series of paintings:
“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.”
The painting took part in an exhibition of contemporary art, organized by the Daylighted Gallery from San Francisco.
It was honored by Vango Art (gallery from San Francisco) as one of the best summer paintings.
The term “contemporary art” refers to art made and produced by artists living today. Contemporary artists may question traditional ideas of how art is defined, what constitutes art, and how art is made, while creating a the styles and movements that came before them.
In conclusion contemporary artists working within the postmodern movement reject the concept of mainstream art and embrace the notion of “artistic pluralism,” the acceptance of a variety of artistic intentions and styles. Whether influenced by or grounded in performance art, pop art, minimalism, conceptual art, or video, contemporary artists pull from an infinite variety of materials, sources, and styles to create art. For this reason, it is difficult to briefly summarize and accurately reflect the complexity of concepts and materials used by contemporary artists.
First of all varnish is a resinous layer, natural or synthetic. Which is superimposed on the already painted image to protect it from dust, dirt, water, etc. It can also be used to make special optical effects on the painted surface. Additionally it can enhance the color and achieve a richer shine work. In case of oil paints using varnish, can avoid penetrating the oil from the upper layers to the lower ones.
Finally varnishes can be applied on oil and acrylic paints, but also on plasticine, candle crayons, hardeners, wood, plastic, paint canvas, cardboard or glass.
