Algis Griškevičius‘ retrospective exhibition „Three attempts to catch the light“
Personal exhibition "Three attempts to catch the light" of artist Algis Griškevičius runs from August 12 till September 4, 2016 at KKKC Exhibition Hall. Opening on 6 p.m. 12th August 2016 (Friday).
The sixty-second personal retrospective exhibition of Algis Griškevičius‘ painting, photography and objects includes his works, created in 2002, as well as canvas, taken off the easel a few weeks ago.
Algis Griškevičius‘ creative work is characterized by evaluation of the present, actualization of the society‘s condition and rules, not without avoiding irony and tragicomedy. Within a few decades the author‘s painting works‘ colour expression and composition solutions have changed, however one can perceive the succession of creative topics and objects: empty city landscapes more often without people, architecture details, restored and abandoned buildings, scaffolding, non-representative city spaces, empty playgrounds and amusement parks, encounter places of city and nature. There are almost no people in his painting works, or there is a single accidental human, having no impact on the city living its own life. A. Griškevičius‘ painting is special for its details, materiality, closed composition, intensive, expressive light, coming from an invisible source, and connection of extremes into one entirety.
