Tricksters of the Garden of Eden Vol.1 @Elska Coffee

A meeting with artist Rūta Matulevičiūtė on June 13th, 7 pm in Elska Coffee. Here you will see one of her newest series of paintings, which will be exhibited in cafe‘s space until July 22.

About art:

„Triscksters of the Garden of Eden“ is a series of painting, which appeared very suddenly and almost unintentionally. Sometime ago, while I was searching for the Great Truth and Meaning, I met The Joker on my way, who put some shame on me for taking such task. He circled around wearing silly sneakers and playing with lots of orange basketballs. I am not interested in basketball, therefore there could be nothing less meaningful to show to me. Fans, forgive me, instead of  a word ‘basketball‘ imagine something like ‘make-up‘ or ‘ecological toothpaste‘.

This first part of the series consists paintings picturining animal portraits. Animals are living careless days in the Eden Garden, enjoying the perfect bliss. Light paintings created while thinking about the Joker archetype, who is constantly reminding of carelesness and infinite game of life. Joker is making tricks and reminding about the triviality of all, when the great immanent problem is  placed in the context of the Divine.[1]

This first exposition of the series finds perfect place in Elska Coffee‘s space. A place which is public enought to meet the playfulness of the Joker.
