That light and happy feeling that only a late summer’s day can convey; the joy of a luminous and warm landscape before us; a meditative moment while we are admiring an intense sunset, with its colorful shades; a whirlwind of emotions that in restfulness finds its most powerful peace.
Shakespeare’s words of the sonnet Shall a compare thee to a summer’s day? are the fabric on which this dreamy, and online-only, exhibition is conceived. Featuring artworks by Gayle Chong Kwan, Marie Denis, Igor Eškinja, Marcos Lutyens and Michelangelo Penso, the group show deals with warm sensations and light feelings, shared love, endless beauty and the value of meditative time.
In the belief that art, like poetry, can convey beauty and emotions in a unique way, this exhibition aims at lightening our hearts and hopes, and encouraging us to enter into a peaceful and contemplative universe, guided by Shakespeare’s visual words.
