More about this artwork

In the painting, vivid splashes and strokes of red, purple, yellow, and blue blend together, creating a dynamic scene filled with six figures. Each figure appears engaged in different acts of preparation or performance, capturing a moment that feels both chaotic and intimate. The figure on the far left, clad in red, holds a white mask, poised as if in the midst of changing roles. Next to this figure, another character wearing a hat adorned with flowers faces away, adding to the sense of hurried anonymity. The central figure wears a black mask dotted with vibrant colors, holding a small doll, which suggests a surreal, possibly symbolic element. Towards the right, a figure in a blue and purple suit adjusts a plush, colorful garment, immersed in their task. The final figure on the extreme right stands out with a bright yellow top hat, holding what seems to be a paintbrush, pointing toward a palette rich with colors. Below these figures, in the foreground, two additional figures mimic the theme of duality and disguise seen above: one shrouded in a tulle-like fabric and the other sporting high-heeled shoes with bold blue accents, contributing to the overall theatricality and layered narrative of the painting. The composition, rife with movement and color fluctuations, depicts a backstage area teeming with artists in the flux of creation and transformation.

Watercolourist Daiva Šlajienė is distinguished in the context of our platform by her rich, jewel-like colours, which spill out to hypnotise the viewer. Her paintings try to speak to ancient objects, which become the main protagonists of her works, and her figure compositions are like film stills frozen in time or scenes from a performance, where every detail has a symbolic meaning. And to make it easier to understand what the artist means, she adds a short story or a poetic verse to each piece. You can find it by opening the painting and clicking on the "DESCRIPTION" section.

Daiva Šlajienė is a member of the Lithuanian Artists' Union, a watercolourist, who has held solo exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. She has participated in more than two dozen group republican and international exhibitions.  Her watercolours have been acquired by collectors in Lithuania, Norway and Sweden.
