About

We are pleased to present ANSKA, Agnė Juodvalkytė’s first solo exhibition at Blake & Vargas.

The exhibition consists of large-scale paintings and intimate pieces created by the artist during the last 8 months. The title of the show, ANSKA, a Lithuanian term of endearment referring to the artist's grandmother, sets and defines the symbolic space of the exhibition that is centered around the complex nature of memory and the imaginary act of remembering.
All canvases shown are the result of a slow process of color layering. Juodvalkytė’s use of color resembles an alchemical examination of the material’s different states of matter: paint made of plants, natural pigments, graphic dust - from raw to fluid - are applied on the canvas in bold gestures. Combined, they result in multi-layered abstract landscapes that invite the viewer to immerse themselves, yet refuse any concrete reading.

Agnė Juodvalkytė uses textiles and painting as a framework to understand culture, history and technology. Often presented in an anthropomorphic way, her works breathe their past into the present, becoming multidimensional artifacts extending not only into space but also into time.
Born in 1987 in Vilnius, Lithuania. Agnė Juodvalkytė lives and works in Berlin and Vilnius.
