Endless summer By Charis Tsevis
A series of nostalgic summery scenes from retro summers. Pictures from the 50’s or the 60’s, when the summers were great. But were they? Was the world really better back then? Or we just tend to forget the problems of the past?
Summery scenes created from parts of vintage ads and ephemera. This is the image that we have from the past. An image always brighter, always distorted from the advertising, the cinema, the nostalgia.
This is an ongoing self initiated project.
2 or 3 layers of mosaics made out of pieces from ads and other printed ephemera from the distant past. Mainly imagery from the 30s till the late 70s have been used here. They are mounted in 2 or 3 separated layers of plexiglass. Ideal to decorate the walls of motels and summer houses. Those who are waiting for our future summers.
