About the author
Ugnius Motiejūnas's works capture the spontaneous expression of the artist's creativity in several layers of brushstrokes and tonal contrasts.
Warm tones predominate in his work. Cold shades shimmer in one or another area of the canvas, enlivening the artist's abstract. The works are nostalgic and at the same time exuberant.
"<...>Ugnius Motiejūnas depicts in his works various objects and forms whose equivalents in reality can only be imagined. The abundance of geometric shapes, the bright but dark colours and their repetitions give the impression that we are watching something that is developing and growing right in front of our eyes. Everything is intertwined, one formation leads to another, and so on, without end, until everything returns to its original position. Rhythmically, repetitively and unstoppably.
What is also very interesting in the works of Ugnius Motiejūnas is how he is able to navigate between the spots of colour. In some places, geometric objects are filled with a single colour, while in others, the artist plays with paint and combines a variety of colours to create an impression of depth and volume in the work, until finally a world full of rhythm opens up in front of the viewer's eyes.
