How does your summer scape in 2020 look like? For most of us, we had to tweak quite a bit of what we had once planned earlier this year to this strangest summer ever, I would assume. Last summer, I was busy rediscovering my home country, Japan, after years away. In Canada, it was the season for filling the schedule with concerts and hiking weekends. In my hometown, it used to be for the sunset surfs and bar hoppings. Darn! I miss the normal summer (if it ever comes back.)
If you’re reading this now, you’re probably one of those who are stuck sitting at desks and are confused if you should attempt to enjoy life with the mask on in the heat or stay prudent about the virus while suffering from FOMO syndrome. Same here. I found myself searching and scrolling down “the summer paintings” and escaping from reality by dreaming for the better one in 2021.
Here is the summer of the past, present, and (hopeful) future in art.
Pool party, is it what you’re missing?
Staying “in a party mood” forever is the Aika Takahata’s wish through her artwork. It may bring the exhilaration by hanging it off your wall.
Or is your party happening indoor this summer? Some artists are opting for the same too.
Usually, there are numerous local summer festivals in Japan. The crowds enjoy the food vendors and fireworks, but it won’t be the case this year.
The rustic “vacances” seems to be a big trend here in France.
Hope this trip in art was somewhat soothing for your soul. In part 2 of “Summer at TRiCERA,” we’d like to present the seascapes, our artists’ favorite motifs, and abstract expression of this season. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter!
