ABOUT

The artist’s creative journey has been ongoing for thirty years. He creates pieces in painting, ceramic, he also works with wood, stone, and metal. Ramūnas Dagys is a prolific plein air artist and an active participant of numerous exhibitions. He has been a member of the Lithuanian Artists’ Association since 2009. During his whole creative period, the artist’s works have undergone numerous stages. Gradually, undergoing slight changes, the oeuvre of Ramūnas Dagys has matured and acquired an individual style distinguishing him from other artists’ works. What his oeuvre has retained, however, is that it always balances between realism and abstraction.

Rendered through expressive brushstrokes, the artist’s paintings feature the nature which remains open and is in a constant dialogue with man. In his works Ramūnas does not seek to recreate a landscape in a recognisable way; rather, what is crucial to the artist is the inner state when the paintbrush in his hand captures the relationship with nature, instant moods, emotions, experiences, and senses. The horizons in the paintings contain encoded signs which help the viewer decipher implicit ideas and create his/her own vision.

The works extensively feature complex symbols which in a way transform and distort reality by imbuing it with originality and otherness. In the compositions of lines and stains and in their organic forms lies the essence and the unexpectedness of the paintings. The works invite others and oneself to search for the meanings of the objects featured in paintings and to re-decode the concepts and ideas encoded in the artistic pieces.
