Jurate Rekeviciute

(Lituania/Lithuania)

Lucr\rile faimoasei artiste lituaniene Jurate Rekeviciute reprezint\ o nou\ abordare a artei grafice conven]ionale. În ceea ce prive[te imprimarea tradi]ional\ Jurate Rekeviciute este mai mult o reprezentant\ a sub-culturii. {i-a creat propriul mediu de lucru unde criteriul conven]ional de percep]ie artistic\ nu mai exist\. Toate lucr\rile artistei [i f\r\ îndoial\ propria imagine artistic\ sunt marcate de excentricitate. Cele mai recente lucr\ri ale ei sunt realizate într-o tehnic\ proprie – a imprimat în relief haine second hand [i a ad\ugat cu ingeniozitate o iluzie a “corpului” cu o “iscusit\” linogravur\. Lucr\rile par s\ absoarb\ c\ldura oferit\ de corpul fostului proprietar al hainelor [i istoria dezvolt\rii spirituale a oamenilor pierdu]i; lucr\rile devin active social [i provocatoare. Lucr\rile realizate în tehnic\ mixt\ – zeflemitoare [i juc\u[e – dezv\luie ironic valoarea aspectelor vie]ii demne de analizele lui Z. Freud, [i atrag prin simplitatea lor aparent\. La o prim\ privire sunt u[or de în]eles, [i totu[i, în esen]\ nestatornice [i polisemantice. Sociale, iste]e, uneori [ocante, puternice, picante, rudimentare, [ic, aceste lucr\ri exprim\ dezvoltarea continu\ a artei grafice contemporane [i necesitatea unei concep]ii actuale. Ignas Kazakevicius, critic de art\, Lituania

The artworks of famous Lithuanian artist Jurate Rekeviciute are a new approach to the conventional graphic art. In terms of traditional printmaking Jurate Rekeviciute – is more likely a representative of sub-culture. She has created her own media where a conventional criterion of artistic perception no longer exists. All works of the artist and, undoubtedly, her own artistic image are marked by eccentricity. The latest works of the author are made in original technique – making relief print of second-hand clothes and skilfully supplementing a “body” illusion with “sharp” linocut. The works seem to absorb warmness from the body of the former owner of clothes and spiritual development history of lost people; the works become socially active and provocative. Works made in mixed technique - mocking and playful - ironically reveal the life aspects worth of Z. Freud’s insights, attract by their seeming simplicity. At the first glance are easily understandable, however in fact - versatile and poly-semantic. Social, smart, sometimes shocking, powerful, hot, rough, posh, these artworks express further development of contemporary graphic art and necessity of topical conception. Ignas Kazakevicius, art critic, Lithuania
