Art critic Vaida Tvarkutė
Artist's creative path continues for twenty years now. During this period his creativity has passed many stages. Gradually, slightly changing, it matured, discovered a distinctive style that separates the author from the other artists. But it always remained balancing between realistic and abstract art.
A considerable part of the artist's creativity is occupied by works painted while participating in the plein air, both in Lithuania and abroad. In plein air paintings, nature is immortalized with expressive strokes, which is open and speaks to man. Ramūnas does not seek to accurately recreate the landscape so that it is recognizable, the most important thing for him is the inner state, when there is an opportunity to convey the connection with nature, momentary moods, emotions, experiences with a brush. As if an impressionist plays with light in his works. In landscapes, he conveys his moods, fleeting sensations. The signs encoded in the horizons help to decipher a silent, unspoken thought, and allow you to create your own vision.
Painting for Ramūnas is like music, when a brush in his hands turns into a musical instrument, creating melodious music on the canvas, while using color instead of notes. During the painting process he enjoys compositions of lines and spots, looking for synthesis of light, space, sense. He reflects light by color language. Experimental and energetic touches breathe life into paintings, they radiate inner light, searches, dynamics.
Paintings are characterized by the multi-planarity of the image. Vibrant color spots do not please the viewer, on the contrary - they open up a way for distinctive works’ perception. While painting, Ramūnas does not lie to himself, he conveys impressions of the moment and what he feels, he matures it and radiates through his own emotional color prism.
In the paintings there are plenty of objects of various meanings, which transform, distort reality while giving it originality and otherness. The meaning of the painting itself lies in the compositions of lines and spots, and in the organic forms. There is a given possibility for others and for the artist himself to discover meanings of painted objects, to read encoded concepts and ideas once again.
