„THE INFINITE PAINTING“: AN INFINITE PAINTING OF LEO RAY
Painting exhibition “The infinite painting“ from Leo Ray (Israel) opens on the 16th of December, 2016 at 5 p.m. at KKKC exhibition hall (Didžioji Vandens g. 2, Klaipėda).
The exhibition “The infinite painting” of Israeli’s artist, originating from Lithuania, Leo Ray, is composed of joined canvases of different sizes and proportions, which contained scenes that seemingly had little in common. What drove the artist to start this project was the desire to abandon the format of a rectangular painting and an inner need to create large works. “I always wanted to paint large paintings. Large areas of color have this bewildering emotional force”, - L. Ray argumented his choice. However, large format canvases wouldn’t fit in the artist’s studio, so he found another way – painting canvas after canvas like a diary. According to L. Ray, “just like one writes a diary – page after page. Not like memoirs, but a diary, because you don’t know what tomorrow will bring. It will be a potentially infinte work, like a diary - with its natural ending, natural pauses and without any initially planned structure or plot”.
