SUMMERTIME SADNESS by Kristi Marié

April Solo Show

On exhibition from 4 April to 4 June


"Summertime Sadness" is a visual journey that chronicles the beauty found in both the joyous memories and the poignant farewells of the season. At its core, the series is a reflection on the fleeting nature of time and the impermanence of life's most cherished moments. Each artwork serves as a snapshot of a memory, capturing the essence of carefree laughter, warm embraces, and sun-drenched adventures that define the summertime experience.

 

Yet, amidst the radiant hues and joyful scenes, there lies a subtle undercurrent of melancholy—a recognition of the inevitable transition that accompanies the changing seasons. As summer wanes and the days grow shorter, the paintings shift into a softer palette, enveloping the landscapes in a haze of twilight and introspection.

Through this series, I invite viewers to reflect on their own experiences of summertime, to embrace the richness of nostalgia, and to find solace in the ever-changing tapestry of life's seasons. "Summertime Sadness" is not just a collection of artworks; it's a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the enduring beauty found within the fleeting moments of existence.

I delve deeper into the intricacies of the human experience through meticulously detailed landscapes that reveal stories of connection and introspection. Figures emerge from the mist, their silhouettes bathed in the warm embrace of the sunrise. As they traverse the landscape, each step becomes a journey of self-discovery, guided by the ever-present glow of the morning light. These works serve as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, reminding viewers of the beauty found in moments of reflection and growth.





Bouquets

In my acrylic paintings, I craft vibrant bouquets of colour that evoke a sense of joy and vitality. Bold strokes of pinks and oranges dance across the canvas, intertwining to create a symphony of hues that celebrate the vibrancy of life. These works invite viewers to immerse themselves in a world bursting with energy and optimism, where every stroke serves as a testament to the beauty found in every moment.




 

Foggy moon light evening

I venture into the realm of misty landscapes shrouded in the veil of dawn. Here, the delicate interplay of light and shadow takes centre stage as I weave together scenes of tranquil beauty. Amidst the soft hues of purples and pinks, a radiant moon casts its gentle glow upon the landscape, infusing each brushstroke with a sense of enchantment and mystery. These paintings beckon viewers to lose themselves in the serenity of the twilight hour, where dreams and reality merge in a symphony of colour and light.
