Search of feminine identity in paintings by Monika Furmanavičiūtė


(Click on the image to see more artworks.)

"My paintings raise issues of feminine identity and interplay between the sexes. I analyze myself in my work while also invoking psychoanalysis and sociology in order to investigate and depict feminine nature more generally." (Monika Furmanavičiūtė)

New gemetric composition by Leonas Katinas at MAC galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"In his paintings, Katinas merged the different spatial grounds in a way that made them eventually become mazy labyrinths comprised of zigzagging lines and intertwining planes. <...> Geometry functions as the link between nature and abstract forms." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New painting by Povilas Ričardas Vaitiekūnas at MAC virtual galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"He managed to convey the ephemeral “Lithuanian nature” of the landscape like few others could. <...> His landscapes are Lithuanian in their distinct blend of sundrenched greenery and the blue of the sky, as well as the horizon perspective of the river Nemunas. They portray the summertime noon and the evening shadows, slowly creeping when its swelter recedes." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New painting by Adomas Danusevičius at MAC virtual galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"A. Danusevicius' painting is intellectual and sensuous. You will not mistake his works for other authors. Not only because Adomas draws and paints men - doing sports, communicating, having fun. The drama of paintings is very important to the artist - the characters' relationships, the audience wathing them and the viewer's gaze." (Laima Kreivytė)

New photo by Romualdas Rakauskas at MAC virtual galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"Soviet period was a terrible time, but even then I was looking for flowering gardens and tenderness, so it perfectly matched the norms of social realism - to show bright world and beautiful people ... I didn't have to adapt to this approach or to revolt against it, because my attitude was exactly the same." (Romualdas Rakauskas)

New painting by Mindaugas Skudutis at MAC virtual galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"Born out out of pain and despair, manifesting itself in ghostly (yet superbly painted) shapes, Skudutis’ work provides the viewer with a bitter quasi-life experience. The truth and beauty contained by many of the artist’s paintings should set off this bitterness and simultaneously harden the viewer’s soul, instead of frustrating it. Not the superficial truth and beauty, though, but those that are hard to handle for the human eye." (Alfonsas Andriuškevičius)

New drawing by Algirdas Gataveckas at MAC virtual galery


(New artwork in the virtual gallery is red framed.)

"I draw one child for 2 - 3 months, we spend a lot of time together, so they can see that good things don't come quickly. I am an example, who had gone a difficult way, like an older brother, that one could be proud of and achieve similar goals. I introduce arts to the children, but I don't force them in any way to relate their future to the arts, I want them to create their own lives." (Algirdas Gataveckas)

New artworks by Eglė Gineitytė at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"These works resemble the state of somnolence, when the conscious and the subconscious suddenly merge." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New artworks by Rimvidas Jankauskas - Kampas at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

"In his works, human love, joy, fear and suffering acquire a universal dimension, turning into rebellion or a symbol of desire for freedom. The paintings contain sunshine, swelter, bright colours and pounding rhythms." (Raminta Jurėnaitė)

New artworks by Algimantas Julijonas Stankevičius-Stankus at MAC virtual galery


(New artworks in the virtual gallery are red framed.)

“To us is important not only his paintings and drawings, but Stankus phenomena – his life and work canvas which is richer, wider and more complicated than any style or trend. Tragic destiny is an unfolding background for entirety and diversity of Stankus art.” (Kęstutis Šapoka)

How to read paintings

A work of art remains speechless until the mind of perceiver speaks to it. Only then a man gets acquainted with his work. Once started this acquaintance doesn’t want to let go and always invites to come back and experience the joy of discovery, learn to watch and penetrate.  

This segment is designed to help the works that are in the virtual MMC gallery to start speaking your language. Thanks to art critics and authors cooperation, texts-guidebooks are being made for paintings. This will give an opportunity to study the world of art in a closer look.

Teaching gallery – is an educational project aiming to present Lithuanian art in the space of a school. The project is implemented by the collaboration between non-govermental organization IDES and Modern Art Center. Teaching gallery is projected towards the school communities (teachers and students) who will get a chance to engage into the Lithuanian modern and contemporary art by exploring exhibitions of the artworks’ reproductions in the daily school space.
The first exhibition will be dedicated to the classical Lithuanian photography by presenting the works of Antanas Sutkus, Vaclovas Straukas and Romualdas Rakauskas. The reproductions are made using the artworks of Modern Art Center collection. The related educational material is prepared with the advice of art critics and educators and it could be used as an optional material for art lessons at school.
The first seminar for school teachers, taking part in Teaching gallery, will take place on the 25th April. It will be followed by the monthly exhibitions in 10 Lithuanian schools.
