About the work
This image is from the series “On the black wall” and was exhibited in Vilnius Photography Gallery in 2021
Exhibition Concept Photography cycle “One The Black Wall” - pandemic caused dialogue with yourself, time, boredom and unknown. All images are made in enclosed space using black painted wall whilst experimenting with long shutter speed. The artist itself is the main character in the pictures. The shapes created by movement live and die together. The black color - not only is a great decor for a wall, pandemic caused claustrophobia symbol, but it is also brilliant comeback for a real raw process of photography - birth of an image in the dark from the dark. Movement compositions created on the wall mirrors an effect similar to hypnosis. Light is also playing an important part, constantly reminding its importance in transformation in movement.
About the artist
I am a Lithuanian photographer living in Vilnius. After studying music and painting at the Lithuanian Academies, I started working as an art editor in a publishing house, and later as a photographer in an interior design magazine.

I regularly participate in group and personal exhibitions in Lithuania. I am a member of the Lithuanian Photo Artists' Union. My works have also been exhibited in the galleries in the United States and France.
