More about this artwork

The painting depicts the close-up view of a human figure lying down, as seen from behind. The composition primarily focuses on the curves, contours, and flesh tones of the body. The skin is rendered in various shades of pink and red, with highlights and shadows that suggest the natural form and texture of human skin. The pose is relaxed yet intimate, emphasizing the roundness of the hips and the softness of the buttocks, which are central in the frame. The background is a subdued grey, which further accentuates the vividness of the human figure against the stark, plain backdrop. The brushwork appears fluid, enhancing the organic feel of the body’s surface.

Artist

Birutė Remeikytė's paintings often question social norms in society, standards of the body and beauty. Many different motifs dominate her work, the most frequent of which are the human body, its expression, curves, and the desire to free oneself from the surrounding standards.


The author is looking for new, unconventional angles, and body parts are often depicted in her works as distorted or deformed, as if she were asking what kind of deviation from the norm is tolerated in our society. At the same time, we begin to see how little we know our own bodies, ourselves, how we are used to seeing only one standard, if tilted at a different angle or, for example, if the fingers cover the eyes, it begins to appear strange and alien. The artist emphasises the body's ability to change, to deform, its curves with expressive brushstrokes that are as unpolished as reality itself.


Birutė Remeikytė graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts in 2014 and participated in exhibitions in Lithuania and Scotland. Her work has found homes in Portugal, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom, Cyprus, Iceland and Lithuania.
