To last summer, and the many fruitful summers that may follow.
About the Print:
The original painting of An Ode to Summer Lost was created in summer of 2020, an eerily empty time of the year compared to the summers that have come before. I found myself in an abandoned gazebo at the beginning of a pandemic that would continue for the foreseeable future and it reminded me of a piece I made a long time ago called "Trip the Light, Fantastic". It featured dancers enjoying a late summer evening with a proud gazebo lit up. I wanted to reference this well known print of mine by alluding to the ghosts of these dancers filling up this space once more. Almost as if it were a glimmer of a past and future finding itself in the present. The summer of 2020 was a time of serious reflection, it made me appreciate what we once had, the freedoms we took for granted and the future we could summon.
Our latest print "An Ode to Summer Lost" is a 20" x 30" limited edition giclee print with layers of screenprinted elements in two separate editions.
