About the author
When we talk about landscapes, the shimmering surface of the water, the painted leaves of the trees, the clouds floating in the sky usually come to mind, but Kęstutis Jauniškis sees nature through the prism of architecture.
This artist breaks down the visible landscape into large components, deconstructs it and reassembles it again on canvas from stylised spots of colour, like a collage of cut-outs in which the laws of perspective do not apply and the third dimension, if it does appear, does not serve the illusion of realism. The monotony is saved here by the colour contrasts, the gentle gradation of shades within the spots themselves, and the differences in texture. Jauniškis's paintings are characterised by soft, gentle lines, sparing, even miserly used details and earthy colouring.
The author's landscapes often move away from visual reality towards abstraction. A real dessert for the eyes of modern art fans.
Kęstutis is a member of the International Association of Miniaturists in Australia (Tasmania). He participates in exhibitions of miniatures organised by this association.
