Summer Love. Lena Snow Lena Snow
“Summer Love” This artwork is part of a series of artworks I created in memory of my mother. I have always had a very difficult relationship to her and my childhood with her was traumatic and violent since she suffered from alcoholism and manic depression. However, she has not always been like this. When she was younger, she used to be a happy, charismatic and beautiful woman. I my series I am trying to express her charisma and charm in her younger years. This is a way for me to see my mother differently and brings me closer to her. Also, it deals with my own identity and similarities between her and me. In order to make the artwork authentic, I used old photographs of my mother and projected them on photo paper. Then I painted the rather fade projection in a scribbling style with acrylics pencils. By using a mixture of photography and painting I want to combine the aspect of «reality» and «memory». Reality in that sense that the artwork is based on a real picture and resembles my mother and memory is represented by the scrawling style, because memory is never accurate, just a perception or even impression we have of a moment or a sequence of moments.
