Acrylic on canvas 130cm x 160cm (unframed)
A memory window into day and nights in marines where summer stays still.
‘Marinas Daynights’ displays the bookends of summer near the ocean, the before and after of the high season when crowds are at a minimum, temperatures are cool and, for Cvik, frolicking at sea with local friends is at its peak. Summers spent in Greece meant a change of scenery coming from the inland Slovakia, and this meant more experiences and memories to pull from onto the canvas. Cvik’s process of ‘painting as thinking’ allows him to replace the images and emotions in his head onto his works. The colors in the painting are mixed in a way that conveys the cold air and also the prime weather of the Indian Summer. Just as the marina is the start and the end of a journey, it represents the beginning and the end of summer as well.
