IEVA MARTINAITYTĖ–MEDIODIA'S EXHIBITION "EXPULSIONS OF EVE"
Ieva Martinaitytė–Mediodia's exhibition Expulsions of Eve presents her works formed between Vilnius and New York. The most comprehensive exhibition of Ieva's oeuvre in Lithuania will include works from the LEWBEN and MO collections and the latest paintings. Her works reveal changes in the author's worldview, from the mythological (Eve's expulsion from Paradise) to the cosmological one, with plasmatic detritus and black holes. The emphasis is on neofuturistic, rather than retrospective view.
Ieva will not allow the viewer to enjoy paintings peacefully. Existential anxiety subsists in her artwork not only for the human, but for the worlds non-existence, as well. The underlying sense of ecological catastrophes as global warming and another world war in her semi abstractions are more real than a mere fantasy. The artist is balancing between the abstract and the figurative art. Even abstract images in her works are related to physical matter and fluid substances.
