About the author
If Pablo Picasso said that art is meant to wash away the dust of everyday life from the soul, then Irena Čingienė fulfils this task perfectly - you will find nothing mundane in her paintings. The author loves travelling and discovering, so you will often see motifs of distant lands and uplifting music on her canvases. Even the paintings with figures of people, often couples, are more about the inner relationship with each other and with oneself.
The artist has chosen her themes delicately and with an appropriately sensitive technique. Although Irena has mastered the realistic manner of painting, she does not overplay it, the drawing often retains a sketchy lightness, and more attention is paid to the play of light, to the layers of light that shine through each other, creating the effect of something unearthly, an illusion. Looking at Irena's work, you will probably quickly notice the earthy palette of tones, which the artist uses to great effect through its hundreds of tones and half-tones, and only occasionally elegantly adds brighter colours.
Irena Čingienė's works, which fuse drawing with a variety of textures, colours and subtle halftones, are the perfect complement to classical interiors.
