Eglė Kuckaitė about exhibition.
Having to deal with Simpson.
There are situations when one is just made to walk in Simpson‘s shoes. That‘s not bad. It‘s jolly difficult to not be a simpson in our global age.
The works depict my time before The Simpsons, with The Simpsons and my time after The Simpsons. The borrowed figurines of The Simpson family denote the intermediary signs in my creative work, encrypting the ideas of the time at hand.
The majority of work is produced in monotype, oil on paper and canvas; other pieces are in pastel, acrylic, lead (graphite), watercolor, photography. The period is 1995 and 2006-2010.
