Arūnė Tornau. DISAPPEARING IMAGES
On March 9th (Wednesday) at 6 p.m. at the gallerys "Meno parkas" first floor exhibition hall (Rotušės a. 27, Kaunas) will be held an opening of the exhibition "Disappearing images II" by a painter and art teacher Arūnė Tornau.
Paintings that exhibited in here are extended version of the exhibition "Disappearing images" (that were held in a summer of 2015 at the Lithuanian Artists' Association gallery at Vokiečių st. 2 in Vilnius). Conceptions, ideas and works accumulated over the past year - works fragmentary been presented in group exhibitions, where there was not posible to extract a solid narrative. I wanted to purify one of the themes that constantly recuring in my works: large-format paintings and theirs cycles that explores the subjective experience of a woman's life through the abstracted variety of natural phenomena motives. Nature inspires a certain spiritual states, that later appears in the painting. To me this subject seems relevant in its existential and poetic nature, also as parallel in a contest of contemporary (eco)femininst tradition, which finds its expression in Lithuanian contemporary art field. Therefore the exhibition is dedicated to wide art viewer, who is interested in both visual and philosophical modern and contemporary context of culture.
Ephemeral, disappearing images - fading color, decay items, loss of traces, change of the motive are dominating in the paintings. In such context of disappearance and death, exhistence of items and objects are just intuited or non-existent at all.
