More about this artwork

The painting depicts an abstract and somewhat gritty representation of a letter and a letterbox. The top part of the image features a mailbox with a narrow, horizontal mail slot, indicated by a darker black rectangle. Below this, a letter is visible, seemingly emerging or being pulled out from the slot. The letter itself appears crumpled and is covered in dense, scribbled text, suggesting a hurried or distressed hand-writing. There is a small, circular element that possibly represents a stamp or seal near the corner of the envelope, hinting at the official or significant nature of the message. Additionally, faint blue lines, reminiscent of streams or tears, are located near the bottom right, which might symbolize sadness or other emotional undertones connected with the contents of the letter. The bold use of black and white contrasts in the composition conveys a stark, dramatic visual impact, emphasizing themes of communication, possibly under distress or urgency.

The paintings by Ovidijus Talijūnas echo Japanese calligraphy with their subtle lines, controlled style, and careful selection of few colors. In several compositions, the author uses black embedded with pastel areas within, resulting in an impression of stained glass. It is as if light bursts out from the depths of the canvas, sulking through a layer of colorful glass. 

The painter's works interpret tradition in a contemporary manner, at the same time spawning an archaic atmosphere achieved using amulets and hieroglyphs of an unknown language. The aesthetics of written language are highlighted clearly: one can observe relicts of Braille, magazine cutouts and so forth. And even though these works are quite abstract, they're fairly associative, provoking the imagination, and bringing guidelines of possible interpretations to the front. The materiality of the paintings can almost be touched at times, whether it's realized through massive, monumental shapes, or using brush strokes as effortless as a summer breeze. 

The artist therefore employs various types of paints, ink, screen printing, and combines it all to create collages of unusual textures and effects. It's also a combination of mastery, emotion, and authentic intuition.
