Summer Turns to High
Original, Acrylics and mixed media on canvas, c 50cm x 50cm (no frame needed) – £445
This painting drills into the summer quadrant of life – heady days of sunshine and success tinged with a bit of rough with the smooth and where the biological clock is ticking. The quote “Circle citronella candles” contained within it is taken from R.E.M’s song “Summer Turns to High”. It directly references the ticking clock of aging, and depicts the rough with the smooth through the darker shadows on the summer sun. Although essentially a joyous time, there is a bittersweet element through the citronella candle reference.
