Ward-Nasse Gallery is pleased to announce the first one-person show of Antanas Adomaitis : Creations of the Unborn Artist.
Antanas Adomaitis is a self-taught artist from Lithuania. He has acquired an audience in his native country and had many successful shows in Germany, Poland, Holland, Canada and USA.
Antanas Adomaitis views the world as a strange, complicated and often hostile place. He tries to reflect and study the interplay between nature and psyche, to bring for the tradition, but carry it further into the realm of the unexpected. Sometimes it is the color which leads one in and out of the maze of form. In these particular works, the color is actually creating a sense of irony.
In his mixed media paintings he uses both implied illusions, as well as the actual physical content, which helps him to create a physical and psychic phenomenon of color interaction.
When I paint, I forget about time. The process of creation is complicated and very intense for me. Hundreds of additional details emerge while I am working. The pressure is so high, that I can describe my style of work and state of mind as 'five minutes of insanity', says the artist. Anatanas Adomaitis is an intriguing combination of polysensory inspirations with a complexity bringing out the most diverse results attainable for a person with unstoppable energy and creativity.
The exhibition will run from August 1st to August 24th, 2006. The opening reception is on August 5th, 2006 from 3-7 p.m.
Ward-Nasse Gallery is located at 178 Prince Street, between Thompson and Sullivan. Gallery hours are: Tuesday-Saturday 11-6 and Sunday 1-6. For more information, please contact Biliana Videnova at: 212-925-6951.
