Solitary Confined- The Screams. acrylics on paper, 11.7 x 16.5″, A4 30 x 42 cm

The Screams- Solitary Confinement in Lithuania was done during our visit to Lithuhania. This scene is from the Gestapo/Soviet detention and torture facility. This nightmare is the solitary confinement chamber just barely bog enough for one person and was probable kept very dark. It’s torture without leaving a mark on your body.

Some strange art and impressive art at the University of Vilnius

Petras Repšys  (1940) painted a rather strange set of scenes on the ceiling and walls of a room at the University of Vilnius.  It is worth a look.  He is a graduate of Vilnius Art Institute (1967)  Works in sheet, book, graphic arts, ex libris, easel paintings, frescoes, sculptures, medals. The exilibrisus began to develop in 1969 .  Here are some photos of his fresco “Seasons of the Year,” executed from (1974-1984).
