More about this artwork

The painting depicts two figures seated closely together against a vibrant red-pink background. The figure on the left, with alert blue eyes and a flushed complexion, gazes directly at the viewer, her lips pursed as if in mid-conversation or contemplation. She is adorned in a pink dress, and her blonde hair is styled simply. The figure on the right wears a large, enigmatic mask reminiscent of those seen in traditional Venetian celebrations. The mask is bluish-green with hints of aqua around the eyes, which are wide and staring. It features a long, curved beak-like nose. This masked figure also wears a pink outfit, and they hold a plate with a colorful cake or tart adorned with yellow and red dots, symbols perhaps of fruits or decorative elements. The intimacy and contrast between the two figures—the bare, expressive human face and the inscrutable mask—suggest themes of hidden emotions or identities, the interplay between what is revealed and what is concealed.

I am a painter whose works have been displayed at multiple local exhibitions here in Lithuania. My technique primarily involves the use of watercolour and oil on canvas, combined to get an aesthetically pleasing synergy of colour and form. Living in an animal farm deep within Lithuanian countryside, surrounded by velvet lakes and untamed woods, my inspiration comes from nature, local folktales and fantasies they arouse. I am inspired by my personal experiences, some, as an artist in Lithuanian countryside, and thus when asked to explain my imagery I often find myself at a loss, unable to ascribe a single source of meaning. I graduated from the National School of Art and in 2008 I was awarded the Master of Arts by Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania.
