More about this artwork

The painting captures a fantastical scene blending elements of vibrant nature with historical architecture. On the left, a woman with orange hair is seated gracefully atop a surreal, blue horse-like creature. They are situated beside a swath of green foliage, perhaps a stylized hill or forest. Below them, a river teeming with red and blue fish flows vigorously toward the painting's center. A striking blue line, possibly a railing or divider, sharply separates this side from the right side of the canvas. On the right, the serene and iconic Taj Mahal structure sits in the distance, its white domes reflecting elegantly under a warm sky that transforms from pale yellow to a deep greenish hue. The scene is both magical and serene, presenting a dreamlike melding of two disparate worlds.

Graphic artist, painter and sculptor, born in Kupiškis, currently lives and works in Vilnius. In 1991-1995 she studied graphic arts at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, and in 2013 she obtained a Master's degree in painting.

Eglė Kuckaitė's work is characterised by its elegance and subtlety. The compositions of the etchings are minimalist, even the line, the main means of graphic expression, is used by the artist sparingly, without overloading, without being intimidated by the white page. But she does not use colour at all.

You will quickly notice that there is little to no context in her works, even when depicting a city, she chooses the facades of a few buildings and hangs them in an empty space. And if there is a space surrounding the objects depicted, it is unreal, non-existent. The artist says that in this way she wants to prolong the uncertainty and the speculation of meanings, so that the viewer can search for his or her own interpretation  in the widest possible field.

One of the most frequent themes in Eglė's work is the fusion of nature and man. Here, human figures take on parts of plants or dissolve into lush foliage or the flames of fire, merging with the elements as a tiny part of a larger whole.

The artist has had exhibitions in Lithuania, and has participated in international exhibitions in Nurmes, Koli Ryynanen (Finland), Tallinn, Frankfurt, New York, Rome, Salzburg and Bucharest. In 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2017, the artist was awarded scholarships from the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture. In 2011 she won the Kulturkontakt Nord, and in 2005 she was awarded a scholarship from the North Karelia Arts Council. Kuckaitė's works have been acquired by Lithuanian and foreign museums and private collectors.
