Event description

Description

Daina Kiseliene, who was born in Lithuania, believes that artwork explores what divides us and what unites us, and how symbols throughout history have contributed to both.

"We all find individuality in our appearance, our religious beliefs and our geographical locations, but ultimately we are united by the same beginning and the same end. In the end we are connected by more elements than divide us.

My artwork explores what divides us and what unites us, and how symbols throughout history have contributed to both. I draw inspiration from Dutch renaissance still life, which heavily features symbolism. I also like to experiment with my art, and enjoy testing new techniques and mediums."


Tatjana Simanaitiene graduated from Lithuanian Art Academy in 1992. Since this period of time she was interested in watercolour. Tania had influenced on Lithuanian artist’s M.K. Ciurlionis (1875-1911) and M. Dobuzinskij (1875-1957) creation as well as Great Britain artist J.M.W. Turner watercolours. The artist works in fields of watercolor, oil painting, textile. Since 1989 she has exhibited her art works in national and international exhibitions. Tania Sima held 15 solo exhibitions and participated in 30 group exhibitions.

Presented Tania’s watercolors have been painted during the last 3 years with participation in various artist’s pleinairs and traveling in Lithuania. They depict Lithuanian landscapes of Vilnius, Klaipeda, Curonian Spit and other places. Watercolors used various techniques, depending on the task, mood and landscape of the year. The artist likes the technique “wet on wet paper”, so you can catch instant moments. The pictures are in a small size (most – 28x38 cm) on a sheet of watercolor paper, because it was the most convenient way to travel.

The artist hopes that this quick glance at her beloved Lithuania will attract the viewer and encourage them to visit this wonderful land. Historically, Lithuania has always been considered a bridge between East and West. In 1989, French researchers found that the European geographic center is in Lithuania, 26 km from Vilnius. It is believed that the power of the whole of Europe is concentrated in this place…
