Thursday review
Indrė Ercmonaitė (painting)

26 January – 2 February 2012
Opening – 26 January, 6 p. m.

This Thursday review features the works of Indrė Ercmonaitė (born 1985). The name of this young artist inevitably surfaces in all conversations about the painting of the young generation. While still studying in the Academy of Arts for her Master’s degree, she held a show Žaidimas-Spektras-Perspektyva-Spektryba (Lithuanian for Play-Spectre-Perspective-Spectrainting) in Vilnius Planetarium.

In the context of other young painters, the artist’s works can be distinguished for their technical excellence and experiments with brushstrokes. Recently, the artist has shifted her interest towards the peculiarities of human sight and perception of colours, and how flat strokes can create an autostereogram (a certain pattern which creates an illusion of a three-dimensional scene). To this end, she uses layers of patterns consisting of small, thin strokes reminding of marker pen traces.

Contemporary art gallery “Vartai“ organises open reviews of artworks. These practical one-hour Thursday events introduce the latest works of a selected artist and analyse the genre, development, uniqueness and potential of his or her artwork.

Through the Thursday reviews, “Vartai“ gallery aims to collect and publicise the latest news on the works of contemporary artists, provide a more exhaustive introduction of the authors, promote works of acclaimed artists and discover new promising names.
Works submitted for reviews shall be available for viewing and purchase in the Review Room of “Vartai“ gallery.

Personal presentations of artworks can be arranged for art collectors any day of the week. Please, arrange your visit in advance by contacting “Vartai“ gallery on the phone (+370) 5 2122 949 or by e mail
Artists wishing to submit their artwork for the reviews should contact the gallery by e mail
