Summery Paintings Inspired By Old Photographs

We can practically smell the ocean breeze.

Some of our fondest childhood memories aren’t elaborate stories we can recall with precise detail. Sometimes it’s just the smell of the family BBQ smoking away in the backyard, or the way the sun spread over the pool while you were splashing around with your cousins. Artist Jessica Brilli captures the mood of those everyday moments in her paintings, inspired by Kodachrome slides and old photographs. The Massachusetts-based artist, who we first learned about on Jealous Curator, features her newest work in a show called Holiday, exhibited at Kobalt Gallery in Provincetown through July 13.
