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.”
It has set on in 1945, after the II World War and lasts till today. The foundation for the contemporary art was prepared by the Dadaists, who perceived the artist as the creator of the idea. New trends were born, such as abstract expressionism (in Europe- informel), action painting, color field painting, pop-art, op art, conceptual painting, street art, calligraphic painting and others.
The most famous artist are: Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein, Francis Bacon , Victor Vasarely.
In contemporary art there isn’t one aim or a point of view. It gives a heterogeneous and ambiguous glance at the contemporary world. Furthermore, there has always been a huge tendency to experiment and search for innovative language which would be consistent with the changing reality (photomontage, collage, manifesto, object, installation, happenings, video installation, performance). Sadly, today it seems that there are virtually no aesthetic or moral bounds in artistic expression.
Satin damar varnish
Varnish is a fast-drying, resin-based varnish that is used as a protective coating for oil, acrylic, watercolor, or oil tempera paintings. In addition to preserving artwork, and offering protection against dirt and dust, a varnish creates a beautiful semi-matt finish.
