Painting named "Summer Picnic"

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.” – Deb Caletti

Lightbulb…

The entire world within borders of the well familiar shape. Idea, meaning and state of mind, that everyone can discover for themselves. The goal of the project is to support ideas of sustainability, such as preserving the environment, taking care of ecology and supporting principles of fair trade. Sustainability is a lifestyle, that consists from small daily choices – to mix or sort waste, to buy several cheap t-shirts or single fair-trade t-shirt, to fill your diet with conventional or organic food. The lightbulb shape was chosen as a result of a long selection and carries both direct and indirect meaning. Lightbulb – is a message, that encompasses a profound idea of merging own ego with understanding of responsibility for your own choices. During the work process, I tried to combine mood, colour, technique and tools into a single whole. These incredible effects were achieved by the use of hot wax, water colours, salt, vodka, textile, as well as other materials and tools.
