Summer art collecting to keep the great vibes flowing at home

 

With long, drawn-out summer days spent getting my much-needed dose of vitamin D, my apartment life spreads thin as I spend a great deal of time outside absorbing positive vibes.

 
With long, drawn-out summer days spent getting my much-needed dose of vitamin D, my apartment life spreads thin as I spend a great deal of time outside absorbing positive vibes. So that my time indoors reflects these same feelings of light and creativity, summer is when I collect new art for my home. I strive to make it a creative place where colour and shape express the things that I cannot convey in any other way.

Art has always been my first language. I have a great interest in exploring the relationship between the positive health effects of the visual arts as well as music listening, movement-based creative expression and expressive writing, which are all tools that affect my attitude, productivity, mood and happiness.

It is very important to have art at home, whatever your taste. Art has always been an innate part of human civilization, recognized for its restorative and transformative qualities. So in an attempt to learn more about art therapy, I gathered up warm and cold colours, while being drawn to the yellows and oranges of summer rays, hazy repetitive sun rings, circles and geometric shapes. I tried combinations of abstract patterns and figurative subjects to create new connections, and relationships with alternative perspectives on life.

You too can bring the warm summer vibes from outdoors inside your own home. Trust your instincts when you choose the art that makes your indoor living space restorative and transformative for you and your loved ones.
