About the author
Dalia Kirkutiene's work is vigorous and expressive, and the most important thing for her is to convey a feeling and emotion. The task is not easy, but the artist undertakes it with enthusiasm. After many years of exploration, the artist turned to abstract painting and discovered the technique of pouring, which is so well suited to convey the intangible. Pouring paint may seem simple at first glance - in fact, playing with chance and controlling the flowing paint requires great skill and intuition. The patterns of paint runs have already become the artist's signature.
To purify the idea, the artist chooses a minimal colour palette; when colours are abandoned, the focus is on the original composition, and when they do appear, they play an important role - they become the main carriers of the message. Other important codes are contained in the title and in the occasional outlines of recognisable shapes that appear in the works. However, these are only indications for the viewer's interpretation - in this way, the author tries to avoid banality and clichés. Kirkutienė herself says that she does not like prose in her paintings and prefers the freedom of poetry, preferring to convey the desired impression and emotion not with a concrete image, but with colour and verbal associations.
The dialogue with the viewer is extremely important to the artist - in the eyes of the viewer, the work is reborn. Therefore, the artist does not want to impose anything on the viewer, because the most important thing is what the viewer himself sees in the work, what he finds in it that is close to him, and no one can say that his interpretation is incorrect.
