Due to climate change, we are having a sultry summer, as if we were trapped in a heat dome. There are many ways to help you forget this sweltering heat and win. First, wear light, brightly colored cotton clothing that reflects sunlight and heat and helps your body maintain a normal temperature. Spend more time in an air-conditioned area because it reduces the risk of heat. Stay in the shade as much as possible and avoid sun exposure during peak intensity hours.
These methods are probably the wisest and most scientific methods, but how about looking at a picture that will help you forget the heat emotionally and psychologically?
Recently, I found a cool picture to escape the heat of summer.
Eric Zener(born 1966, Astoria, Oregon) is an American Photorealist artist best known for figure paintings of lone subjects, often in or about swimming pools.
Below is the official website of the artist who drew the picture above.
Zener is a self-taught artist. As of 2004 he had created more than 600 works. His paintings, mostly in oil, are in a photorealist or "super-realist" style Zener describes as "Contemporary Renaissance"
Below are some of his cool paintings that I personally like.
Above all, it is impressive that the dynamic movements of the people diving in the pool were captured well with the depiction of water droplets.
I like the picture below. When I look at this picture, when I see society from the position of a woman, I can feel the urgency and instability of living in the world as a woman. It is as if walking on a single rope, but I think the life of women who have to walk steadfastly.
You can discover the artist's genius by looking at the picture below. You can feel the realistic dynamism of diving right now.
Below is a quote from the artist's philosophy and sincerity.
My works, charged with hope and renewal, reflects our collective desire for transformation into something ideal. I create a sense of sanctuary using the metaphor of water, sleep, and landscape. I believe that even in its ephemeral state, these places lift us and free us from the weight of our world and allowing us to dream. (by excerpt, Eric Zener)
Especially I felt that Eric Jenner was an artistically successful artist, as I found comfort and freedom through painting exactly as this artist intended.
