More about this artwork

The painting features a striking image of a nude human figure reclined in a surreal, fantastical landscape. The background and immediate setting around the figure are awash in shades of warm red and gold, invoking an almost molten, honey-like atmosphere. The figure itself is draped languidly and appears partially merged with structures resembling honeycombs, which also cover parts of the figure's lower body and right arm. Large, realistic-looking bees are strewn across the canvas, hovering over the figure and nestled in the honeycomb structures, suggesting a deep, intrinsic link between the bees and the figure. Surrounding the area are red roses with hints of purple, and what appear to be small, stylized buildings, as if a miniature cityscape has invaded this intimate, organic tableau. This interplay of elements creates a thought-provoking juxtaposition between nature and the urban, the intimate and the expansive.

He has held several solo exhibitions, and is also a frequent participant of group exhibitions and plein-air workshops.

In his work he uses every method of expression known and available to him: pittura metaphisica, intuition, surrealist dreaming, Dadaist irony, assemblage puzzles and anything else that comes to mind. Danielius Rusys painting is filled with the spirit of surreal fairy tales: disproportionate figures, interesting angles, people with the heads of various animals or no facial features at all. The paintings seem to have faded away, with a range of pastel tones, in which brighter lines, circles and ornaments appear.
