‘Crazy Yellow’ was created over 3 years, and is a strong example of the artist’s mark: sharp, dramatic atmosphere and multiple artworks forming large painting groups which increase the thematic depth and experience. In her abstract works, Birute often seems to walk on the edge of a psychological abyss, trying to keep the balance between pain and irony, sometimes creating a dimension of the absurd. The works are dominated by yellow and black: this colour combination according to Lüscher colour test connotes a state of extreme desperation when looking for escape and a risk of unpremeditated actions when seeking a change.
The artist says: “These works are about the unseen, intangible but foreboding feeling. They also hold the energy of determination to move forward, even if that courage seems like madness at the time.”
From 2016-11-15 till 2016-12-03 this painting group will be presented at the Westminster Reference Library Gallery, London. Please visit, more information here.
