More about this artwork

The painting depicts a rustic, floating shelter constructed on a raft, anchored on a calm body of water, likely a river or lake. The shelter, appearing to be made from aging wood, has a sloping, shabby roof and equipped with a makeshift sail attached to a tall, rough pole, suggesting it might be movable. The exterior walls of the shelter are adorned with various objects: a hanging lifebuoy, lamps, and a buoy. A few garments are strung up to dry on a line above the shelter, fluttering in the breeze. On the shelter's extended platform, equipped with tires presumably for buoyancy, stands a ladder and a pole with an antenna, hinting at attempts to catch a signal or communicate. The serene and vast horizon is marked by distant trees and a soft, gradient sky from blue to the warm hues of a setting or rising sun, evoking a sense of isolation and tranquility. This scene captures a makeshift but charming abode set against the backdrop of nature's expansive beauty.

"Reality and fantasy, seriousness and light irony, romance—these elements are all woven into my work. The imagery, dreams, and visions of childhood mingle with the realities of the present, resonating not only with me but also echoed in the critiques of my pieces. This suggests that I touch upon and convey the emotions of others. I have been companions with the brush for over 40 years," says artist V. Valius regarding his creations.

The artist commenced his exhibition journey in 1983, organizing six solo exhibitions in Lithuania and contributing to numerous group exhibitions.

V. Valius's works grace private collections across various European countries, the USA, and Australia. Additionally, the artist showcased his creations in art fairs in Hamburg and Berlin.
