ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Whereas Spring ushers in new life within Omiros’ Four Seasons series, his depiction of Summer acts not only as a continuation of nature’s bounty, but the successive decline into the colder metamorphosing autumn and impending desolate winter.
Summer uses short, blended brushstrokes that appear to question where the plant life ends and the particle filled expanse of sky begins.
Using a palette consisting of muted yellows and greens, reference is made to the ultimate conclusion that the bright and delicate colors of the previous season have faded into maturity during the summer months.
In Summer, Omiros further obscures his renderings of plant life, the particular subject being wheat, in the lower half of the composition, as if to remark that they will soon be gone, passing on as the seasons so naturally do.
Much like Spring, Summer reflects Omiros’ vision as an artist able to surpass art’s historical traditions in painting when it comes to his representation of well-established genres.
