My colour linocut prints are my responses to what I observer and experience, especially - ever-changing natural world. Time that is allotted us is a most precious gift. We are not able to change it, stop it, or affect it, but we do have the ability to spend it on creativity rather than destruction, and strive for unattainable, harmony, kindness and beauty.... However, the present, the future - they are not a specific periods of time, but rather a projection of ancient cultures onto this day. I believe in dialogue with the past and the continuous evolution of creativity.
Daliutė is a graphic artist from Vilnius, Lithuania. Her beloved technique is colour linocut prints and she prefers to work in large format. Her style is very detailed, and precise, comparable to filigree jewelry. She produces very limited edition prints – lately ranging from 4 to 10. Daliutė‘s works are full of poetical metaphors and symbols that stem from the sacred beauty of nature and thematically are void of any human existence and activity. Her colour pallete is mainly soft, pastel tones, but she is also very comfortable in exploring subtle nuances in dark tones, that make her prints dramatic and mysterious. Branches, leaves, roots, cracks in ice appear as fragile and temporal elements of a boundless and infinite universe, comparable to intricate melodies appearing and vanishing into a rich orchestral background. Daliutė is also a director of the Kazys Varnelis House Museum that has a collection of artwork as well as works by abstract painter Kazys Varnelis.
