“Solution” 170x130cm , oil on canvas, 2018
The painting’s title in artists native language is “Išeitis” which can have two meaning as the solution and the action of leaving something. The two interconnecting spaces - the interior and forest are connected by possible actions of person depicted. The variety of painting gestures both divides the spaces and binds them too, as well as broad interpretation possibilities creating various meanings (for example the forest as a symbol of the unconscious and room space - a symbol of a part of consciousness). The resistance appears here as a main part of Ruta Matuleviciute’s works NoT to create solid concept for her artistic practice in general. Which also creates paradox when speaking about the open comprehension which in this case is always left for the observer.
