"THE GENESIS OF SCENERY AND MATTER" EXHIBITION BY ANTANAS JASENKAA. and P. Galaunė House-Museum
This exhibition showcases the author’s works that were created using oil pastel technique within the period of year 2019 to 2020. “This exhibition requires a different way of reading, not unlike the decoding of cuneiform. It appears to me that the topic revolves around transcendence! The pointillistic transcendence of Antanas Jasenka has its own rhythmic and temper, which is together major and minor. It may be a coincidence, but today, when a war is raging, and the material world is losing its significance, these streaky surfaces speak about life and death, joy, and pain in a very special way.” – states a philosopher and theologian Ervinas Koršunovas.
