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 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.
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.
“All art is contemporary, if it’s alive, and if it’s not alive, what’s the point of it?” David Hockney
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.
