Summer Solstice, it’s Summertime for the artist Lizzie Gill
Summer Solstice is a series of images inspired by the Summer season of Brooklyn-based mixed media artist Lizzie Gill. Find out now what it is about!
Brooklyn mixed media artist Lizzie Gill has created a series of works inspired by the Summer season, Summer Solstice. Her artistic practice explores the themes of American retro in a contemporary context and is based on typical evocative scenes; very often the artist uses vintage photographs that she likes to rework at will.
“The works open up new perspectives that show not only where we are, but also where we will be”.
The images become fragments of the Ego, memories of the past that help us to understand the present and, perhaps, also the future. Summer is the main theme of the various plates, which appear fresh, carefree and poetic: the narration of these miniatures is all implied, in such a way as to allow the viewer to recreate personal memories.
Lizzie has also been defined as an artist with a conceptually post-feminist approach: she explores themes such as the modern approach to romanticism and how it evolved through technology, in the form of online courtship.
