Most of us fall in the puzzling grey zone between total rejection of materialism and the pursuit of privilege. While it’s great to have wealth, a heart anchored by commodities will quickly be submerged in anxiety. Our material possessions and the possessions that bring us the most joy, creativity, comfort and wisdom are never the same. Browse art about the objects that quietly console and delight, things of curiosity and gratitude. These artworks make us more aware of the underrated items we already possess — indispensable things that give us enduring satisfaction. We learn to be more grateful for the atoms that make up the noblest items.
We’re all hopelessly drawn to sweets, luxury, and the instant gratification of shopping. Check out our collection of art about leisure and commercialism. These artworks show that consumerism (and aspiring for what we can’t afford!) isn’t necessarily all harmful, they are in fact intimately connected to a genuine desire for dignity and acceptance. With a lighthearted tone, they comment on our fervent self-pampering, pleasure-obsessed lifestyles, at the same time they remind us to stay humble.
The sound of rain is the most soothing, elemental sound in nature. Storms are as much our friends as the sunshine. We like people who smile when it’s raining, those that enjoy watching little rivulets stream down windows, those who appreciate the chance to pause and ponder. You can’t get through life without getting a little wet. Browse our collection of quirky and whimsical art inspired by opalescent air and rainy days.
