More about this artwork

In the painting "Doors Wide Shut" by Donata Banaitytė, various elements are collaged into an intriguing visual narrative against the backdrop of classic panel doors. The central figure, a pallid, statuesque woman with platinum blonde hair, stands solemnly, her face profiled and partly eclipsed by her raised hood. She is clothed in a dark, hooded garment, adding to her austere and enigmatic presence.Beside her, a brightly colored surfboard, adorned with vibrant stripes, introduces a stark contrast to her monochrome appearance. The surfboard, oddly juxtaposed in this indoor setting, leans against a palm-like plant, introducing a tropical element.Flanking the woman on the right is a bust of a bearded man, possibly a figure from antiquity, rendered in classical style and presented on a pedestal. This sculpture adds a historical or intellectual layer to the composition.All of these elements—historical, tropical, and the surreal inclusion of a surfer's icon—come together in a seemingly domestic space that challenges the viewer’s perception of context and narrative cohesion. The embedding of these disparate themes and visual textures invites interpretation and evokes a sense of mystery and anachronism.

Collage artist Donata Buivydė started her work in 2020. Her debut artworks were selected for the biannual project reStart, organised by the Lithuanian Photographers Association, and exhibited in a group exhibition in Prospekto Gallery in Vilnius, Lithuania. She also collaborates with Lithuanian magazine “Literature and Art” by creating covers.

“The very beggining of the creation of collages was somehow very elemental - maybe that’s the reason I continue to look for that tiny line between order and chaos, which is both great mistery as well as an amusement for me. The collage might look like a bunch of separate cuts, but when you look deeper it always reveals a story.

Storytelling is a a key feature in my artworks as my background is in writing. For the same reason the name of the artwork is an inseparable part of it - like one of the paper cuts. I also like to merge both writing and collages - create them as visuals for my articles in online magazine.

For me a collage is a constant reminder of the ability to recreate. Make an integral unit out of scattered pieces. Match the incompatible, link the unlinkable. Don’t look for solutions - look for miracles.”
