MONEY IN PAINTING

The exhibition showcased more than 30 works that centred around money. On the day the exhibition was opened, visitors walked on a “talking” carpet counting its own and others savings. The author of the composition was Antanas Jasenka. The canvas “Money” (2005) by Klaudijus Petrulis became the highlight of the exhibition as it captured the distinct feeling of the “nearing” euro coming to replace the litas. The exhibition also included compositions from Lithuanian centas coins by Jūratė Bogdanavičiūtė, assemblages by Valentas Antanavičius and Giedrius Jonaitis, two works by Karina Matiukienė (“The Map” (2005) created using an original felting technique and “Risk Management” (2005), a collage of plywood and felt), a tapestry entitled “Unidentified Money” (2005) by Ramunė Ruzaitė, four paintings by Bronius Gražys (“Parquet” (2003), “Wallpapers and Vest”, “A Self-portrait beyond the Wall” (2004), “Scarf” (2005)), and “Monarch’s Denarius à la Titian” (2005) by the winner of the national award Valentinas Antanavičius.
