This year Lithuanian exhibition presents not only the latest world art tendencies: openness of creative process, social unity of art work’s subject, aesthetics of superrealism, derivatives of art synthesis, but represents the best traditions of Lithuanian art, especially in the context of classical genres’ actualization: strong drawing, subtlety of graphics, innovation of ceramics and textile.
Selected authors – very distinctive and interesting artists, demonstrating quality in both aspects: subject matter and technique, therefore exposition is solid. Works conceptual, open to associative polisemantics, reflections of social environment, covering field of wide interpretations. Variety of genres is also ensured. The works of painting, graphics, installation, video art, textile and ceramics are presented, often expanding the limits of their spheres.
Power of superrealism (hyperrealism) and caricature of consumption society are to be seen in the painting of Rodion Petrov “Rebranding. WC Public”. Photographically accurate embodiment of an image permits to draw ones attention towards associative essence of a subject matter: usually impossible or absurd situation in reality.
Finalizing, we may state, that creative mobility project “Young European Creators” have found its position on the routes of Lithuanian art map. Abundance of applications during the selection (differently from the previous years, artists from all Lithuania took part in this year’s selection exhibition) witnesses interest of young artist to participate in the international projects, as well as a fact, that strong and original generation of artists is raising in Lithuania._
